    This one isn't for kids but it makes a happy holiday!

    This one is very fluffy and like drinking a cloud.

    12 eggs, separated*
    1 1/2 cups superfine sugar (domino makes a superfine sugar in a small box)
    1 quart whole milk
    1 1/2 quarts heavy cream
    3 cups bourbon
    1/2 cup dark rum
    2 cups cognac
    nutmeg , for sprinkling

    In a very large bowl, beat egg yolks until thick and pale yellow.

    Gradually add sugar to yolks. Using a wisk beat in milk and 1 quart cream.

    Add bourbon, rum, and cognac, stirring constantly so you don't get those separation lumps.

    Just before serving, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into the above mixture.

    Whip 1/2 quart of heavy cream until stiff and fold into the mix.

    Sprinkle the top with nutmeg.

    *I trust my chickens are clean and disease free and I am not worried about raw eggs.

    I'll add another nog recipe that children can have.

    I believe it is approx 1 in 10,000 eggs that carry bacteria, so I wouldn't be too worried...and with all that alchohol...sounds yummy!

    Could you make this with splenda? My DH is a diabetic and can't have the sugar.

    I suppose you could but I don't know the measurement needed. You could divide the batch in half and try it so as not to waste the eggs if something failed. Sometimes those artificial sweeteners leave that yucky after taste.

    If you try it come back and let us know what you did and how it turned out.
