Mississippi Delta Eggnog
Craig Claiborne (1988)/Salli Schwartz
Put the egg yolks and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and lemon-colored. Gradually add the bourbon, beating on low speed. In a separate bowl whip the cream until stiff. Fold it into the egg-yolk mixture. In a clean bowl whip the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the eggnog. Serve in goblets, with a generous grating of nutmeg on top.
