FOR TABITHA.....THE FAMILY RECIPE

 
The family recipe? Now that must sound like the Baldwin Sisters from the Waltons!! You may remember last Sunday my good blogger hostess with the mostess friend, Tabitha over at Badinage was the inspiration for my title of the post for my holiday home tour. Here we are again, back to Tabitha, who is from across the pond. I had heard this connoisseur of fabulous HAD NEVER PARTAKEN OF EGGNOG!!!!!
 Well we can't have that now can we???
And with a handy step by step guide!!!!!
 
Every year when friends or men suitors are visiting the Casa du Borghese during the holiday season, I always get a lot of compliments on the egg nog that I serve.  Do you need some holiday cheer? Need that extra lift to fight the crowds with a smile for holiday shopping? How about loosen up the stuffy bitches at work, or just putting everybody in a good mood at the office party, or perhaps turn that boring party into some fun? Well this egg nog will do the trick.....
 
 
Well fear not dear ones, I'm here to share my recipe!!!!! It has always brought about good times filled with much hilarity. At least from what I can remember. This recipe I promised Tabs I would post, and has been in my family for years, and now in the clutches of my favorite aunt.
 
Elder Family Egg Nog
 
6 EGG YOLKS
1 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
2 PINTS COGNAC
1 CUP LIGHT RUM
1/2 bourbon
2 QTS LIGHT CREAM
6 EGG WHITES
1/2 10X SUGAR
 
IN A LARGE SWANK BOWL of course, BEAT AND I MEAN BEAT, WE KNOW YOU LIKE TO, YOLKS TILL NICE AND THICK, THEN ADD GRANULATED SUGAR BEATING AND BEATING TILL LIGHT.
 
SLOWLY STIR IN RUM, BOURBON, AND COGNAC. FEEL FREE TO SAMPLE MULTIPLE TIMES TO MAKE SURE THE HOOCH IS FRESH.
 
ADD 1 1/2 QTS CREAM AND 1/2 THE EGG WHITES AND BEAT UNTIL WILL COMBINED. I TOLD YOU THERE WOULD BE LOTS OF BEATING.
 
FINALLY BEAT,( OK, MY HAND IS GETTING TIRED, SOMEONE TAKE OVER) REMAINING EGG WHITES TILL FOAMY AND GRADUALLY ADD IN THE 10X SUGAR BEATING AFTER EACH ADDITION. FINALLY GRATE SOME FRESH NUTMEG, cinnamon or both,  OVER EACH CUP FOR YOUR GUEST.
 
ohhhhhh and would you look here, a batch is already made.......
 
 
You can then serve with some Pizzelle cookies, Sand Tarts or my personal favorite, hot mince pie or some homemade almond brittle. And I swear it will bring smiles. Last time I served it to my cute neighbor... we ended up examining the new flannel sheets and the thread count on my bed, And trust-two glasses is all one needs.
Tootles and be in good health!

    1. I do think you'd love it. If your not a big drinker, just cut way back on the hootch, and it still has a great taste without the green house effect!!!!

  8. There's NOTHING like home-made egg nog, especially if it's as booze-infused as yours! Lots of work though.
