Homemade Non-Alcoholic Egg Nog
4 cups whole milk * 2 cups evaporated milk * 2 cups half and half * 12 eggs * 1 ¼ cups sugar * 2 tsp vanilla extract * 1 tsp ground nutmeg
Place the eggs and sugar into a medium glass bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. Transfer the mixture to a saucepan, then stir in whole milk, vanilla extract, and ground nutmeg. In a separate glass bowl, stir evaporated milk and half and half until combined. Heat egg mixture over medium-low heat while stirring constantly to prevent the milk from scorching. When mixture reaches 160 degrees on a candy thermometer, remove from heat and slowly whisk in evaporated milk mixture. Cool slightly before tasting. Add more sugar or nutmeg, if desired, before transferring to an airtight container. Refrigerate overnight or until thoroughly chilled. Serve in mugs and garnish with whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, or a dash of nutmeg.
