Eggnog: The Alcohol Protein Shake
What do you mean, you don’t like eggnog?
You like protein, right? Don’t you want to be big and strong? And don’t you want to feel great? Of course you do. See? You do like eggnog, because it’s basically an alcohol protein shake, and it’s good for you.
Our 50 Campfires eggnog is guaranteed to ease your weary bones after a day of snowshoeing or skiing, and will foster a great many jovial stories about the forest and beyond. Let’s get to it…
- 12 eggs (yolks only)
- 1 quart half and half
- 1 pound of sugar
- 2 cups of good rum
- 2 cups of good bourbon
- 2 tsp of grated nutmeg
- ¼ tsp of salt
- Separate the egg whites and save them for a protein packed omelet in the morning. Beat the 12 yolks until the reach medium consistency.
- Mix everything else together and slowly whisk the eggs in.
- Now comes the hard part – aging it. Eggnog gets more and more delicious the longer it sits. If you can, let it mature in the fridge for a week or two. True eggnog connoisseurs would age it for a full year, but we both know you’re not waiting that long. After two weeks it will basically be a magical protein shake, and your guests will realize that they actually love eggnog.
