Eggnog recipe makes a rich and creamy drink, made with eggs, milk, and sugar that is often served during the holidays.
Place a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, and whisk together the milk and vanilla until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat.
In a separate large bowl, beat together the eggs, yolks, sugar, nutmeg, and salt for 3-5 minutes, or until frothy.
Slowly add the egg mixture into the simmered milk, whisking to combine.
Return the saucepan over medium-low heat and whisk constantly for about 5 minutes. The mixture should reach 165 degrees F.
Remove from heat and pour in the heavy cream, stir until well combined.
Strain and refrigerate the drink for at least 3-4 hours or overnight before serving.
