12 egg, separated
1 cup sugar
3 pints half and half
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1/2 cup rum, cognac, brandy, or whisky
Whip yolks until yellow and thick. Add sugar gradually, blending as you go, until thick and well-blended (on high in the mixer). Add half-and-half little-by-little. Add vanilla, nutmeg and alcohol. Blend well. Beat whites of eggs until stiff peaks form. Add to yolk mixture. Strain into pitcher and serve.
You may increase the vanilla up to 1 tablespoon and the alcohol up to 1 cup, as desired.
