- Add the milk, cream, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice to a saucepan over medium heat and cook for 4-7 minutes, until the mixture just begins to bubble.
- Remove the milk mixture from heat and let sit for 2-3 minutes. Whisk the egg yolks in a large bowl, then slowly pour the milk into the eggs, whisking constantly, until fully combined.
- Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, until cold, then strain out the spices, and stir in the bourbon. Serve each glass of eggnog with freshly grated nutmeg on top, and whipped cream, if desired.
