Lifestyle & Food: It's time for some eggnog!
Christmas is never complete without a little eggnog to ring in the perfect holiday cheer. If you're hosting a holiday gathering, you'll likely have your own favourite version of this drink. Why not try making a creamy dark rum eggnog cocktail?
1 cup sugar
12 egg yolks
4 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
8 ounces brandy
4 ounces dark rum
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Combine the sugar and egg yolks. Beat until thickened.
Add the milk to a large saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Beat the milk into the egg yolks and return to the pan over low heat. Stir constantly until the mixture reaches 150?F and is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Strain from the pan into a large bowl and let cool.
Beat the cream until thickened, fold into the egg mixture. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate for four hours minimum. Serve cold.
