eggnog rum delliedelicious christmas drink

Ah, I love Christmas. So much. Maybe too much? Can you love Christmas too much? Naah! What says Christmas more than a delicious eggnog in front of the fire with friends and family? I’ve tried many different eggnog recipes just to find the perfect one, and the result is of course a mix of many adapted recipes and I think that this is the best one, haha! 😛
So if you want a perfect eggnog with the right amount of spices, alcohol and creaminess – this is the one to try!

Ingredients:
(Makes 600 ml or 4 servings)
3 egg yolks
75 g caster sugar
250 ml milk
250 ml cream
2 cloves
1/2 vanilla pod, split and scrape out the seeds
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
160 ml dark rum
3 egg whites

Method:
Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until airy and pale in color. Set aside.
Add milk, cream, cloves, vanilla pod and seeds, cinnamon stick, ground cinnamon and nutmeg to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Let it cool slightly. Add one fifth of the warm mixture to the egg-mixture and whisk together. Add remaining warm mixture and then transfer this back to the saucepan. On low heat slowly bring the mixture to 80c, stir constantly. Remove from heat and let it cool completely. Add the rum, cover and place in the refrigerator over night.
Whisk egg whites next day and gently fold them into your eggnog and serve 🙂 Merry Christmas!
