We found this amazing Beer Nog recipe by Randy Clemens, author of The Sriracha Cookbook, and decided to make it with Black Snake! If you want to add some extra kick to your nog, try it with Java Snake instead.
6 eggs, separated (Clemens adds, "If you simply can't get past your FDA-instilled fear of raw eggs, you can find in-shell pasteurized eggs in most grocery stores.")
1/2 c sugar, plus 2 Tbsp
2 1/2 c whole milk
1 1/2 c heavy cream
10 fl oz Black Snake
2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
Whisk 6 egg yolks and 1/2 cup sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer for several minutes, until the yolks lighten in color and double in volume. Lower speed of mixer and add milk, cream, beer, and nutmeg, stirring until combined. Reserve yolk mixture. Wash mixer bowl and whisk attachment thoroughly (any traces of dairy or egg yolk left on equipment will keep the egg whites from whipping properly).
Whisk 6 egg whites in cleaned stand mixer on high. Gradually add in remaining 2 Tbsp sugar and continue whisking until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into yolk mixture. Chill and serve, topping each glass with additional grated nutmeg if desired. Serves 8.
