  • Cream together the egg yolks and powdered sugar in a stand mixer. If you have no stand mixer, whisk constantly throughout entire mixing process. Then you’ll be motivated to buy a stand mixer.

  • Very slowly whisk in brandy, bourbon, cream, and milk (in that order).

  • {“Separately, whip the egg whites, salt, and nutmeg until thoroughly combined and fluffy. Fold into the other mixture. Note”=>”At this point you may need to switch to a larger vessel, unless you have a very large stand mixer.”}
