  • Place the pan in a sink or bowl of ice water and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in the brandy, bourbon or amaretto (if you like), vanilla, and ground nutmeg. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.

  • Just before serving the eggnog drink, in a chilled bowl, beat whipping cream with chilled beaters of an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl).

  • To serve the eggnog, transfer the chilled egg mixture to a punch bowl. Fold in the whipped cream. Serve at once. Sprinkle each cupful with additional ground nutmeg, if you like. Makes 14 (4-ounce) servings.

Tips
