Margaret Suran posted to December 25, 2003.  Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and Health and Happiness in the New Year. May all your fondest wishes come true in 2004. Here is a recipe for eggnog from yesterday's N. Y. Times Eggnog, adapted from "The All New All Purpose Joy Of Cooking"

6 fresh egg yolks
l cup confectioner's sugar
2 cups good quality Bourbon
l cup cream
1 1/2 cups milk
6 fresh egg whites
Pinch of sea salt
1 nutmeg

1. In an electric mixer or by hand, whisk together egg yolks and 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar until light, dense and mixture forms a ribbon trail when whisk is lifted. While whisking, very slowly add l cup of bourbon. Cover the mixture and refrigerate for one hour.
2. Whisk in remaining bourbon, then beat in cream and milk. Add 1/2 cup more milk if it is too thick.  In another bowl, whisk egg whites with a pinch of salt, until fluffy.  Slowly add remaining confectioner's sugar while whisking; keep whisking until whites are shiny and hold firm but not stiff peaks.  Fold egg whites into egg yolk mixture.
3. To serve, ladle eggnog into small cups - demitasse cups would work well - making sure to get some foam on each. Grate a little nutmeg on top of each.
Yield: 8 servings

"OMG! You *HAVE* to try Southern Comfort's Vanilla Spice Egg Nog (non-alcoholic).  Of course, BYOB and add bourbon or whatever makes you happy.  It is so delicious!  I buy it at Wal-Mart for like $1.98 per quart.  You've gotta try it.  And, you can't beat the simplicity of, pour, drink, pour, drink, etc.  I couldn't find a link directly to it, but there's lots of articles out there about how wonderful it is.  I christened (sp?) my MelkMug with it!  Definitely hit the spot!"

"...the mugs were a huge hit for Thanksgiving!  We watched Christmas Vacation and drank eggnog that we picked up at Costco.  It's the only eggnog I saw there.  It's packaged as 4 1-quart cartons inside one large red carton and says "Gourmet Eggnog".  It was really good.  We like it because it tastes like the real thing even if you don't add any alcohol."
