The only downside was that I used an electric hand mixer. A stand mixer would work best to free up your other hand to pour the milk mixture and mix the eggs in at the same time.

Ingredients
3 cups of milk
1 cup of heavy cream
3 cinnamon sticks
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon nutmeg
5 eggs, separated
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark rum or bourbon – optional – leave out for non-alcoholic beverage

Instructions

In a saucepan, combine milk, cream, cinnamon sticks, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Cover and allow to steep.
In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until combined and forms thick frothy ribbons when the whisk is lifted. I used an electric hand mixer. A stand mixer would be best. Slowly mix in the milk mixture and continue to mix unit the mixture is combined and smooth. Add bourbon or rum, and stir. Chill overnight or for up to 3 days.
Before serving beat the egg whites in a large bowl or stand mixer unit soft peaks form. Gently fold into eggnog until combined. Serve and garnish with extra nutmeg.
