Homemade Egg Nog

Okay so maybe it's not "Egyptian" but it's still pretty good stuff. This recipe is my mom's, as we do not drink alcohol I omit the rum and bourbon.

What ya need.

5 egg yolks**
1 cup heavy cream**
2 cups whole milk**
Pinch of salt
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup spiced rum
1 1/2 cups Jack Daniels
3/4 cup sugar 

What ya do.
Mix the liquor and sugar together first. It's much easier so you don't have to worry about making whipped cream or scrambled eggs before the sugar is fully dissolved.
Once the sugar has dissolved add in the egg yolks, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fallowed by the milk and cream.
Let it chill for 3-4 hrs and then top with cinnamon or nutmeg and serve.

** The last batch of eggnog I made I used non homogenized milk and cream. It's made a huge difference in the taste. Its good with normal milk and cream but the non homogenized was OUTSTANDING! It's also a lot better made with farm fresh eggs, there is a noticeable diffrence in eggs laid yesterday vs. eggs laid a week and a half ago.
