Clyde Common Egg Nog

I’m also making this nog from Jeffery Morgenthaler:

Our tequila-sherry egg nog at Clyde Common has been so overwhelmingly popular that I figured I’d share the recipe here. It’s based on my original egg nog recipe from years back, just slightly modified to incorporate the lower-alcohol sherry into the mix.

Añejo Tequila and Amontillado Sherry Egg Nog

12 large eggs
18 oz (by volume) granulated sugar (~2 1/4 cups)
3 tsp freshly-grated nutmeg
12 oz anejo tequila (533 ml. or a little under 3/4 of a bottle)
15 oz Amontillado sherry (443 ml. or a bit over 1/2 a bottle)
36 oz whole milk (about 2 1/4 pints)
24 oz heavy cream (1 1/2 pints)

In a blender or stand mixer on low speed, beat eggs until smooth. Slowly add nutmeg, and sugar until incorporated and dissolved. Slowly add sherry, tequila, milk and cream. Refrigerate overnight and serve in small chilled cups. Dust with fresh nutmeg before serving.

Makes one gallon.
