    Our first POTUS had a thing for egg nog it seems.
    This was adapted from a recipe at Mount Vernon

    Makes 6 qts


    2 cups brandy
    1 cup rye whiskey
    1 cup dark Jamaica rum
    1/2 cup cream sherry
    8 extra large eggs
    OR
    10 large eggs
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 quart milk
    1 quart heavy cream
    1 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
    1 cinnamon stick

    -Mix liquors first in a separate container. Separate yolks and whites into two large mixing bowls. Blanchir egg yolks (beat adding in sugar until the mixture turns a light yellow). Add liquor slowly to egg yolk mixture, continuing to beat (mixture will turn brown) until well incorporated. Add milk and cream simultaneously, slowly beating the mixture. Set aside.

    -Beat whites of eggs until stiff and fold slowly into the alcohol mixture. Add nutmeg and cinnamon stick, and stir well to incorporate. Cover mixture in an airtight container.

    -Allow egg nog to cure undisturbed for several days (4-7) in the coldest art of the refrigerator, or outside in a very cold (below 40 degrees) place. The mixture will separate as it cures. This is OK. Just be sure to re-incorporate mixture before serving cold.

    - taste frequently, or until unconscious

    Rum Notes
    This classic recipe is courtesy of Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, one of our favorites.

    Recipe
    This recipe makes 2 quarts and serves 18 to 20.

    Ingredients

    * 8 large eggs
    * 4 egg yolks
    * 1 cup granulated sugar
    * 5 cups whole milk
    * 1½ cups rum
    * 1 cup 80º bourbon
    * 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
    * ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    * 2 cups whipping cream
    * 2 tablespoons superfine sugar

    Preparation

    1.

    In a mixing bowl, whisk eggs, yolks and granulated sugar until smooth.
    2.

    Pour into a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Stir in milk, gradually, blending well with each addition. Heat slowly over very low heat, stirring steadily, until the mixture reaches 160º to 170ºF on an instant read thermometer. The custard should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon: If you draw your finger across the back of the spoon, the line will remain distinct and the custard sauce is done.

    3. Pour the custard through a fine-meshed sieve into large bowl. Stir in vanilla, the Nutmeg Grater Mount Gay Eclipse rum, Bourbon and nutmeg. Let mixture cool, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold, at least three hours and or up to one day.

    4. Just before serving, whip cream to very soft peaks, beating in, superfine sugar as you go. Gently fold into custard mixture until incorporated. Serve from a chilled punch bowl or ladle into individual martini glasses, garnishing with grated nutmeg if desired. (We highly recommend it. In fact, if you don’t have a nutmeg grater—like a peppermill but for nutmeg—get yourself one and some whole nutmegs as a holiday gift to your kitchen pantry.)

    Make 16 cups. Serves 18 to 20

    How do we know he was telling the truth about this?

    If there is such a thing, this drink might be it.
