Instructions
  1. Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Gradually beat in 1 Tablespoon of the sugar.
  2. Stir in the orange and lemon juices, blending well. Add the milk and stir until well combined. Cover and chill at this point if you are not serving immediately.
  3. Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Beat in the remaining sugar until egg whites are stiff. Add the orange juice mixture and gently beat all together until emulsified.
  4. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve well chilled.
Recipe Notes

This recipe is easy and tasty. For a richer eggnog, use half-and-half or whipping cream for some or all of the milk. You may also like to substitute grapefruit juice for the orange juice and honey in place of the sugar.
