  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 8 ounces bourbon
  • 4 ounces spiced rum
  • 1 qt whole milk
  • 1 pt heavy cream

Steps

Serves 12.

  1. In a large bowl, beat together the egg yolks and half a cup of sugar until the mixture turns light in color.

  2. Stir in the bourbon, rum, milk and heavy cream.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with the remaining quarter-cup of sugar until soft peaks form.

  4. Gently fold about one-third of the egg whites into the yolk mixture, reserving the remaining amount.

  5. Divide between 12 punch or tea cups.

  6. Fold more of the egg-white mixture into each cup, if desired, and top each with freshly grated nutmeg.
