As we are rapidly approaching… more like rocketing toward, the days of spending hours upon hours with our loved ones, I started thinking about the drink we maybe shouldn’t be without. Instead of waiting until the news starts blaring “BLIZZARD APOCALYPSE OF 2011!!” in hopes of scaring us into canceling our travel plans to Grandma’s house, we should start with a warm and terribly fuzzy recipe.
Do not drink this before driving, operating heavy machinery, or trying to have an intelligent conversation.
2 cups Brandy
2 cups Rum
2 cups whiskey
5 eggs separated
2 cups powdered sugar sifted
1 qt Half & Half
In a large bowl whisk the egg yolks and the powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Take a swig of brandy. Dump in 1 cup of the rum, whiskey and the 1 cup minus the swig of the brandy. Refrigerate for at least an hour. Take a swig of Rum. Combine the half & half and the rest of the alcohol after taking a swig of whiskey (it needs to be even). Whisk the egg whites till soft to medium peaks. Fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture and then fold into the half & half mixture.Refrigerate. Drink, Eat, Sleep.
I believe the shelf life of this is well past that of a Twinkie.
The original version of this from Jane. Thanks Jane!
