Christmas Eggnog Recipe
This week of our Christmas recipes portfolio we are going to show you all how to make the perfect festive tipple, Eggnog.
We are all familiar with Eggnog, although it's not everyone's cup of tea, it is always guaranteed to be there at the family Christmas party so why not learn how to mix up the perfect batch of the festive brew to impress your family and friends this year.
1140ml/2 pints whole milk
6 free-range eggs
50g/2oz caster sugar
1 vanilla pod, split
20 fresh cherries, stones removed and halved
200ml/7fl oz brandy
cocoa powder, for dusting
Place the milk, eggs, sugar and vanilla pod in a medium pan and heat gently, without boiling, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
The eggnog can be chilled at this stage or served hot. To serve, scatter the cherries in the bottom of each serving glass. Divide the brandy between the glasses and pour the eggnog over. Dust with cocoa powder and serve.
And there we have it, a simple recipe to create the perfect bowl of Eggnog this Christmas.
