  • 6 large eggs separated
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 to 1 1/2 quarts vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1/2 cup bourbon (don’t worry, it’s just a tad)
  • Nutmeg


  • In a large bowl, with electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form (the peaks will stay standing when you remove the beaters
  • In a separate bowl, with the mixer (you don’t have to wash the beaters), beat the egg yolks and sugar on high speed for 7 to 8 minutes, until the mixture is very thick and falls in ribbons when you lift the beaters
  • Using a large spoon, add the ice cream to the egg yolks. With the mixer, beat on low until it is the consistency of a malt, thick and creamy. Dribble in the bourbon (just a bit to taste), mixing on low speed
  • serve immediately in frozen mugs with nutmeg sprinkled on top
