To start, separate your eggs. In a large saucepan, combine milk, half and half, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla. Cook over low heat until warm, stirring continuously.
Let’s spike this eggnog! Add rum, to taste. If you’d prefer a non-alcoholic version, feel free to use imitation rum extract.
In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
