No. 1 | Place egg yolks in a very large bowl. Add sugar and whisk until light and airy with a pale yellow colour. Stir in the milk, rum and alcohol. No. 2 | In a separate large bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Scrape the egg whites into the yolk mixture and fold until well incorporated. Transfer the eggnog to the fridge for at least two hours. No. 3 | Beat the cream in a medium bowl until thickened, but still runny. Zest the lemon and orange overtop, then stir the cream into the eggnog. Grate fresh nutmeg overtop. No. 4 | Return the eggnog to the fridge to chill until serving, or transfer to mason jars if serving at a later date. Serve with an additional sprinkling of nutmeg, cinnamon or whipped cream.


– Aging for any period of time is only advised if the alcohol makes up at least 20% of the volume of eggnog.
