Directions:
Beat the egg yolks together with the sugar until the mixture is thick and creamy. Add the whole milk, bourbon, and cognac. Stir well. Just before serving whip the cream until soft peaks form. Whip the egg whites to a similar consistency and fold both the cream and egg whites into the egg yolk mixture. Pour the eggnog into a very large bowl. Sprinkle a grating of fresh nutmeg on top and serve.
