Alan Jackson’s Egg Nog Recipe
Now, Alan Jackson wants to get in on the action.
Actually he just wants to share his delicious egg nog recipe.
What makes A-Jax an authority on sweet holiday treats? Not sure if there is anything in particular, but he did put out a cookbook in the 90s called "Who Says You Can't Cook It All" and even penned a song about his love of bologna!
Let's get in the holiday spirit with Alan's Eggnog. (Oh by the way, it's spiked so don't be passing this around the kids' table on Christmas.)
If you want to take your holiday cheer (and flavor) to the next level, spring for whole nutmeg that you grate yourself, rather than powdered nutmeg.
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 ¼ cups sugar
6 eggs, yolks and whites separated
¾ cup bourbon whiskey
1/3 cup light rum
1 quart whole milk
Whip the cream until stiff, adding ¼ cup sugar towards the end.
In another bowl, whip the egg whites and ½ cup sugar until stiff.
In a third, larger bowl, whip the egg yolks and remaining ½ cup sugar until creamy. Add the bourbon and rum to the whipped egg yolk mixture. Stir in the milk.
Combine all the ingredients and chill. To serve, top with a sprinkle of nutmeg, if desired. Enjoy.
