Christmas Party

Good Morning this Sunday post is a Family Christmas party/ Every year we have a family party- but it’s been a few years because of COVID. This Saturday we all gathered at my cousins for Christmas music, Food and a good time.

Family Music time:

We gather around the piano and sing Christmas sons.

My family Contribution: Grandma Egg Nogs:

Was my Dad’s favorite and he always brought it to the family party. So I made a batch in his memory and brought it to the party.

  • 4 large eggs yolks & whites separated
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon, white granulated sugar, (Use ultrafine sugar, if possible, it dissolves more quickly.)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup brandy or bourbon *
  • ¼ cup dark rum
  • ½ teaspoon plus more for garnishing, freshly ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon  salt
  1. In the clean, dry bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. With the mixer still running, slowly add 1 tablespoon sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Gently pour the egg whites into a different bowl and set aside.
  2. In the same mixing bowl used for the egg whites (no need to clean the bowl first), place the egg yolks and ¼ cup sugar. Beat the mixture until the sugar completely dissolves and the yolks lighten in color. Add the milk, cream, liquor, nutmeg and salt. Beat on LOW until well combined, about 1 minute.
  3. With the mixer on FOLD, add the beaten egg whites. Place in an airtight, glass container and chill several hours, overnight or even up to 1 year. Research has proven Traditional Eggnog is best served aged 1-3 weeks.
  4. When ready to serve, fill a cocktail glass 2/3rd full, grate a little fresh nutmeg on top and serve. 

Thanks for stopping bye … Lisa
