Tis the season :D. I dont know about all of you but I am getting very excited for the holidays! Not only do I enjoy being around loved ones and sitting by the fireplace listening to christmas classics, but, nobody can deny a big christmas feast! That is why i decided to start this blog. Maybe share a christmas recipe or two with all of you.

One of my favorite Holiday treats. Seems to be relatively easy to put together and takes very little time! To be honest I have yet to drink an alcoholic eggnog mixture to this day. Maybe its time to give it a try!

Traditional Eggnog Recipe
12 eggs, separated
6 cups milk
2 cups heavy/ thickened cream
2 cups bourbon
1+ ½ cups sugar
¾ cup brandy
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg 
In a large bowl and using a mixer, beat the egg yolks together with the sugar for approx 10 minutes (you want the mixture to be firm and the colour of butter).
Very slowly, add in the bourbon and brandy - just a little at a time.
When bourbon and brandy have been added, allow the mixture to cool in the fridge (for up to 6 hours, depending on how long before your party you're making the eggnog).
30 minutes before your guests arrive, stir the milk into the chilled yolk mixture.
Stir in 1+ ½ teaspoons ground nutmeg.
In a separate bowl, beat the cream with a mixer on high speed until the cream forms stiff peaks.
In yet another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture.
Gently fold the cream into the egg mixture.
After ladling into cupsFind Article, garnish with the remainder of the ground nutmeg. 
Serves: 8.
