The story is that this is the eggnog prepared for President and Mrs. Clinton while they were in the White House.
I'm drinking some now and it is too good not to share.
- 5 egg yolks
- 5 egg whites
- 1 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup bourbon
- 3/4 cup cognac/brandy
- 3/4 cup dark rum
- 1 quart milk (up to 1 1/2 quart -- to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 2 dashes nutmeg
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Combine yolks and sugar in bowl and beat to ribbon stage.
Add bourbon, congnac and rum to yolk mixture -- Set aside
Whip egg whites and salt to stiff peak
Whip cream to medium peaks

Combine egg whites/cream mixture with yolk-liquor mixture
