Ingredients:
Sugar: ½ cup
Egg yolks: 4
Milk, skim: 1 cup
Milk, whole: 2 cups
Heavy cream: ½ cup
Nutmeg, ground: ¾ teaspoon
Anise star: 1
Cinnamon: ½ teaspoon
Ground cloves: 1/8 teaspoon
Vanilla extract: 1 tablespoon
Rum: ¼ to ½ cup

Instructions:

1.Whisk the eggs and sugar in a bowl and then set aside.

2. Place skim milk, whole milk, heavy cream, anise, cinnamon, ground cloves, and ½ teaspoon of the nutmeg in a medium saucepan and turn the stove on to a medium range.  Stir occasionally, as you let the mixture start to simmer.

3. Now, pour a little bit of the heated mixture into the egg and sugar mix and stir for 10-20 seconds.  Then pour this mixture back into the medium saucepan and let the entire mixture simmer for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally and lifting the saucepan from the heat if the mixture starts to froth.

4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and continue to stir for two minutes.

5. Strain the mixture and allow it to cool for 30 minutes.

6. Add the vanilla and the remaining ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg to the mixture, stir, cover, and refrigerate for an hour.

7. Now add in the rum, stir, and refrigerate overnight.

8. Taste the eggnog before serving to determine if you’d like to stir in a little more alcohol or ground nutmeg.

9. Enjoy.
