Always wonderful at Christmas in the north. When we moved to Mexico we were surprised to find how similar the traditional Mexican  Rompope is to our northern eggnog.

Ingredients for Eggnog

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heated milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preparing Eggnog

With an electric beater at high speed, beat egg yolks until pale. Beat in sugar gradually unyil thickened and smooth. At low speed beat milk and cream. Beat egg whites stiff in a small bowl.
