There’s a reason eggnog is a classic traditional drink. This one-of-a-kind all-time favorite is superbly delicious, especially if made fresh.
The only problem with a lot of commercial eggnog is it is either too sweet or pasteurized. If you have never been a fan of eggnog, then this recipe might just be what you need to be able to explore the natural yummy goodness of this holiday drink. And who knows? You might want to drink eggnog even if it’s not holiday.
- 4 egg yolks
- 2/3 cup sugar, granulated
- 1 ¼ cup heavy cream
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup bourbon
- ¼ cup rum
Use a mixer to beat the eggs together with the sugar. Wait until the mixture volumizes two-fold.
Set the mixture aside. Then, put a saucepan under low heat and add the milk, cream, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Wait until it simmers.
Add a cup of the hot milk mix into the egg solution. Don’t forget to constantly whisk while doing so.
Afterwards, add the egg solution to the saucepan and let it simmer. Don’t forget to constantly stir the pan until the mixture reaches a temperature of 160 degrees.
Next, strain the mixture. Add the rum, vanilla and bourbon and place the mixture into the fridge until it cools.
Serve the yummy drink with whipped cream or with stirred egg whites.
