Spike That Eggnog!
12-21-2009 3:50 PM

This subject comes up every year around this time. Ever since we became aware of salmonella in eggs, people have been wary of using them raw in the season's favorite libation.

I made eggnog for years, with raw eggs, before they started posting signs like this..."For your safety we are required to cook all our eggs well done, thank you for your understanding." Er, I like mine over easy, thank you, and I've never been poisoned by an egg. Maybe it's because I'm particular about what and where I eat or I've just been lucky. I also use to drink protein smoothies with a raw egg in 'em. Yeah, just call me Rocky.

Anyways, I would make up a batch of nog three weeks in advance and store it in the fridge. I left it in there for three weeks 'cause that seemed like the right amount of time to me, good thing...lol. I always though if there was anything growing in there that the booze would, somehow, kill it. Glad that's been confirmed.

Because of fear of salmonella contamination, I began cooking the eggs to a safe temperature so it would no longer be a concern. It was still good, just not as good as the one made with raw eggs.

BTW, fresh eggs don't float. :D

Oh Wow! Glad you mentioned this, I've been meaning to ask if Bella spiked her eggnog with Brandy, Bourbon, or Rum? I'm guessing rum but wouldn't be surprised if the sweetness of eggnog was better offset by bourbon. Metaxa is pretty good too!

Mmmmm, Greek brandy, that'd be yummy! I know a lot of people use brandy but I never have because Wolf isn't fond of it.  

You're right about the rum though, Appleton Special...and the bourbon, Wild Turkey 101...lol. I use both. :eek: That's not all, just between you&me...
... * looks both ways *... I also add, my never before divulged special super secret ingredient... * whispers *... a little SoCo. :D I happened onto that one year when I was a tad short of rum. A rare, tragic occurrence but it happens.

,Well then a toast! Here's to rum, may it's absence always be sorely missed! To Southern Comfort, the baddest liqueur ever to cross the Mason Dixon line. To pink, need more be said? :P and to champagne, but let's save it for New Years!
