Toast to prosperity and good health for 2014 with this traditional English holiday drink. Eggnog is the perfect mix of raw milk, eggs, and honey with a dash of spices—and liquor too if that suits your fancy. For a new twist on the old classic: put it in the ice cream maker for a delicious frozen treat!
For this recipe, you will need:
- 4 cups raw whole milk OR 2 cups milk and 2 cups cream
- 8 egg yolks from pastured chickens
- 1-1/2 TBSP vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp ground nutmeg
- 4 TBSP raw honey
- OPTIONAL: liquor of choice (brandy, rum, whisky, bourbon, vodka)
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend on medium for 30 seconds or until frothy. Pour into glasses, spike with liquor or garnish with a sprinkle of spice, and enjoy! For ice cream, simply pour the eggnog into an ice-cream maker. Once it's churned to the right consistency, sprinkle with cinnamon on top, and serve. Happy Holidays!
