Miss Carl's Egg Nog

Via my mom over the phone sometime in 1990 or so.
16 eggs
1 1/3 c. sugar
2 qts. half and half or 1 qt. milk and 1 qt. whipping cream
vanilla
nutmeg
Break eggs into a very large mixing bowl and beat at high speed until very thick. (They should stand almost in peaks and be very light in color.) Gradually add the sugar and then the cream. Flavor as desired. Allow each person to spike her or his own glass, then top with nutmeg.

Miss Carl—or "Carly," as we called her— was Mrs. Carl Huddleston, the mother of my mom's best friend Mary Bob.

Yeah, those are raw eggs.
