For the past couple of years, I've been looking for a perfect eggnog recipe, because I love it, and anything that helps it seem more holiday-y around here is always welcome! Last year there was the nog that was more like Egg Drop Soup than anything else. But this year I found the one.
A word of caution: this recipe doesn't have you cook the eggs (= raw eggs), but I like to live on the edge so I just went with it.
Separate the egg whites and yolks into two separate bowls. Use the bigger bowl for the whites, and beat them until fluffy.
Once the egg whites are fluffly beat in 1\2 cup of sugar
In the separate bowl, beat yolks until creamy then add another 1\2 cup sugar
Fold the yolks into the egg whites, stirring gently. Or if the raw eggs on their own wasn't wild enough for you, you can stir it roughly. Either way.
Stir in the milk...
Pour into a bowl or pitcher, and chill.
