There are a few sure signs that Christmas is on its way. One is the arrival of eggnog. Hi I’m Rebecca Britton and welcome to watchmojo.com and today we’ll be making this Christmas treat.
Here the ingredients you’ll need for a batch of eggnog that should serve about eight people: 12 eggs, 6 cups of milk, 2 cups of heavy or thicken cream, 2 cups of bourbon, 1-½ cups of sugar, ¾ cups of brandy and finally 2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.
First step separate the eggs and make sure to keep both the yolk and the whites. In a large bowl beat together the yolks and the sugar until the mixture is firm and about the color of butter which should take about 10 minutes.
Now add the bourbon and brandy very slowly only a little at a time. Once the alcohol has been mixed in we can leave it to cool in the fridge for up to six hours.
In a separate bowl beat the cream on high speed until it forms stiff peaks.
Now and yet another bowl beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
About half and hour before your going to serve the nog add the milk to the chilled yolk mixture.
Now add about a teaspoon and a half of the nutmeg.
Gently fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture.
Now gently fold the cream into the egg mixture.
To serve ladle into mugs and sprinkle with a dash of nutmeg.
Some eggnog recipes call for the mixture to be aged for up to year but if you just can’t wait serve this one up on your next holiday gathering and your sure to have people coming back for more.
