Holiday Recipe- George Washington’s Egg Nog

What’s your recipe for egg nog? I’ve never made egg nog and thought I’d give it a go this year. One of the more interesting recipes that I found is George Washington’s personal recipe for egg nog. His has an abundance of liquor and sugar in it. It also makes a lot, so you might want to halve or quarter it. This is what George would do.

— 1 pint brandy

— 1/2 pint each rye whiskey and Jamaican rum

— 1/4 pint sherry

—-1 quart each cream and milk

—- One dozen tablespoons sugar

—-12 separated eggs

Mix it all up and let sit in a cool place for several days.
