Milk of the Stars
Dionysos' homemade eggnog recipe

Separate the yolks from the eggs. Cover the whites and set them aside (refrigerate).
Beat the confectioner's sugar into the egg yolks, adding it gradually.
Slowly add two cups of rum to the mixture, beating constantly.
Let the mixture stand uncovered and unrefrigerated for one hour.

Slowly add the remaining rum, beating constantly, then the whipping cream, likewise, finally (still beating) add the brandy.
Cover and refrigerate for three hours.

Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry; then fold them lightly into the mixture.

Serves one company of heaven.
