Eggnog | Homemade eggnog | Boozy Chirstmas Drink

When it comes to eggnog you either love it or don't. If you are a spice lover then you will love it. But then if spices are not your thing then this drink is not for you. As for me, I love eggnog. Its creamy, its luscious and its comforting. This here is an adult version like the one where Jake drinks and sings "mammio daddio" in Two and a half men. Most of the eggnog recipes that I came across uses uncooked eggs and whipping eggwhites and folding it into the drink. Well I hate uncooked eggs and this recipe was just right for me. I referred lot many recipes and came up with my own version. As for the rum, you can totally skip it and add imitation rum extract or if you are one who doesn't love rum flavor then skip it.

Prep time: 5 mins; Cooking time: 15 mins; Serves: 2 cups
~*What U Need*~
Egg yolks - 4
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Whole Milk - 1 1/2 cups
Heavy cream - 1/2 cup
Freshly grated nutmeg - 1/2 + 1/8 tsp
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Ground cloves - 1/8 tsp
Cinnamon - 1/8 tsp
Rum - 2 tbsp

How I Made it:
In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture doubles in volume and is a nice pale color{I missed including that in my step by step pictorial}. Add the cream, milk, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg in a saucepan and bring it to a gentle simmer. Add about half of the hot milk into the egg yolk stirring constantly. Add this into the saucepan with the remaining liquid and cook stirring constantly until the mixture reaches 160 degrees or coats slightly the back of the spoon. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve, add the rum and vanilla and place it in the fridge to cool completely, best if refrigerated overnight to allow the flavors meddle.

Serve chilled with a dollop pf whipped cream!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
