J.R.’s Receipt for Egg-Nog

From Sara Delano Roosevelt’s Household Book

Put a little powdered sugar into a tumbler
A teaspoonful or more of brandy
The yolk of a pastured egg
1/2 a tumblerful (3/4 cup more-or-less) of fresh, cream-top milk,

then fill up with cracked ice not too fine & shake well together in a shaker (a big tin tumbler & a strong glass tumbler).

Strain it into a clean tumbler & put on top a suspicion of freshly-grated nutmeg.

-James Roosevelt with son Franklin Delano
