My favorite is basically the recipe from "The Joy of Cooking": Beat separately until light in color 12 egg yolks Beat in gradually 1 lb. confectioner's sugar Add very slowly, beating constantly 2 c. dark rum, brandy, bourbon, or rye These liquors form the basis of the "nog", and you may choose one variety or mix to taste; I prefer rum. Let mixture stand covered for 1 hour to dispel the "eggy" taste. Add, beating constantly, 2 to 4 cups of liquor (chosen as above; I use rum) 2 quarts whipping cream 1 cup peach brandy, if desired (I've never added it) Refrigerate covered for 3 hours. Beat until stiff but not dry 8 to 12 egg whites Fold egg whites lightly into the other ingredients. Serve sprinkled with fresh nutmeg and cinnamon to taste. Yield is about 1 gallon. This is a very rich, high-cholesterol, high-octane eggnog. If you use 4 cups of liquor in the second part, it will be *very* alcoholic; if you only use 2 cups, it will still be pretty strong.
