This recipe is from the brilliant Alton Brown. I tested it as I had never made an eggnog before and it was so perfect I wanted to share it all with you guys. You can find all my recipes on my blog

Full Recipe:
egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
1 pint whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
3 ounces bourbon
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg / extra for decorating

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the egg yolks until they lighten in color.
Gradually add the 1/3 cup sugar and continue to beat until it is completely dissolved.
Set aside.
In a medium sized saucepan, over high heat, combine the milk, heavy cream and nutmeg.
Bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Remove from the heat and gradually temper the hot mixture into the egg and sugar mixture.
Then return everything to the pot and cook until the mixture reaches 160 degrees F.
Remove from the heat, stir in the bourbon
