4 egg yolks
4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups low-fat milk
1 cup rum, brandy, whiskey or bourbon
Nutmeg to garnish
Use half of the sugar to beat with the egg whites. Slowly add the sugar once the whites start to firm a bit, and keep beating until the whites have nice firm peaks and a glossy sheen. Place aside.
Use the other half of the sugar to beat with the egg yolks. Really have at them with an electric beater until it changes consistency. Work those yolks hard.
Add the milk and the spirit to the beaten yolks and stir. Then add the egg whites and gently whisk.
Serve with some sprinkled nutmeg.
Hey Presto, it's Xmas time. You can tell because you're plastered. Merry Hic-mas!
