  1. Beat egg whites in a glass, metal, or ceramic bowl until foamy. Add 1 cup sugar gradually, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks.
  2. Beat egg yolks and remaining 1 cup sugar in a separate bowl until frothy and lightened in color.
  3. Fold egg whites into egg yolk mixture gently; pour into a large punch bowl or pitcher. Stir in rum, half-and-half, and milk.
  4. Top eggnog with nutmeg; serve with ice.

I liked this and it had the perfect amount of booze for us. Most call for more than one type which gets a little confusing. This blend was great!
