6 eggs, separated
1/2 cup super fine sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups brandy
1 cup milk
heavy dash of nutmeg (use for garnish also)
Beat the egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, nutmeg, salt, and vanilla together until it is very thick and has a light yellow color.
Slowly beat in the brandy and milk.
Cover and chill overnight in the refrigerator.
Shortly before serving, beat the egg whites to soft peaks.
Gradually beat in remaining 1/4 cup sugar and beat this mixture to soft peaks again, creating a meringue-like cream.
Slowly pour this cream over the chilled brandy mixture, folding it in gently.
Serve the eggnog in a mug, Irish coffee glass, or punch cup and grate nutmeg over the top for a garnish. Serves 16
