Passed down through generations, this eggnog has been hailed by countless holiday revelers as the best-ever. Be careful though, this cheerful libation packs quite a punch! With its velvety smooth texture and seductive flavor, it goes down easily, so be sure to enjoy it in moderation. The secret of its mild flavor is letting the eggnog "age" or "mellow" for several days after it is made. Remember to include the mellowing time when planning to make this holiday favorite - and - remember to warn your guests that it’s very merry!
Place egg whites in the work bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; whisk until soft peaks form. With mixer on medium-low speed, add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, then increase the speed and continue whisking until stiff, glossy peaks form.
Fold egg whites into the yolk/cream mixture. Ladle eggnog into glass (or ceramic containers). Cover, and store in the refrigerator for 4 days before serving. (Note: During the aging time, the egg whites will float to the surface. Stir the eggnog once each day to reincorporate the whites into the mixture.)
To Serve: Serve well chilled in small glasses or cups. Remember to enjoy
