Alabama Egg Nog

We always seem to loose this recipe when it's time to make it, so I thought I would post it here so I'll always know where it is. We make it every New Years Eve and it is wonderful. We leave the bourbon and rum out, and replace it will milk.

8 Eggs, separated
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 pint bourbon (Wild Turkey)
5 cup Whipping cream, Whipped (2 1/2 cups before whipped)
2 cups Milk
2 ounces rum
Ground nutmeg

Combine egg yokes and sugar; beat until smooth.
Add bourbon very slowly beating constantly.

Add 1 cup whipped cream to egg yolk mixture and beat until smooth.
Add milk beating well.
Add remaining whipped cream and beat until smooth; stir in rum.

Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.

Chill thoroughly. Sprinkle with nutmeg before serving.

Yield: About 14 cups.
