George's Rehabbed Eggnog
A Guilt-Free Holiday Drink
Milk is substituted for cream in this low-fat, adults-only recipe.
Heat milk in a heavy saucepan over moderately low heat until it just simmers. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, sugar, cornstarch and salt in a bowl. Carefully add the milk in a stream, whisking, and return mixture to the saucepan.
Cook the mixture over moderately low heat, stirring, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 10 – 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour through a fine sieve into a bowl.
Stir in the brandy, bourbon or rum and vanilla. Cover with plastic wrap, pressed directly on the surface of the eggnog, and chill 6 hours or overnight. Before serving, gently whisk in the whipping cream and garnish with grated nutmeg. Serves 12.
