Easy rich, creamy holiday drink

Eggnog in a Cupffee

Eggnog is a rich, creamy holiday drink that is traditionally made with eggs, milk, cream, sugar, and spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. It is often spiked with rum to give it a boozy kick. While store-bought eggnog is readily available during the holiday season, making your own from scratch is a fun and rewarding experience. Plus, you can customize the ingredients to suit your own taste preferences. Here’s a recipe for homemade eggnog that you can try at home:

Ingredients:

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 2oo ml milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbs rum (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a medium bowl, beat the egg yolks until they are light in color. Gradually add the sugar, beating until the mixture is thick and creamy.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the milk and cream over medium heat until steaming. Gradually add the hot milk mixture to the egg yolk mixture, stirring constantly.
  3. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over low heat. Stir in the nutmeg and cinnamon.
  4. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then stir in the rum, if using.
  5. Transfer the eggnog in a Cupffee. Serve garnished with a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon.

Optional variations:

  • For a non-alcoholic version, omit the rum and add an extra 1/2 cup of milk.
  • For a richer, thicker eggnog, use only heavy cream and omit the milk.
  • You can also add a splash of vanilla extract or a few tablespoons of maple syrup for additional flavor.

Enjoy your homemade eggnog as a festive holiday drink or serve it at your next holiday party. Cheers!
