Christmas Egg Nog


Equipment: a blender, a medium-size mixing bowl, a rotary mixer, and a freezer-safe jug




Four eggs, separated


One cup of heavy cream, whipped until stiff


One half-cup of powdered sugar


One cup of milk


One half-teaspoon of nutmeg


Two tablespoons of rum extract


One teaspoon of vanilla


Two jiggers of brandy


Whip the egg-whites until stiff, incorporating the powdered sugar into them as you beat.


Pour the milk into the blender, together with the four egg-yolks and mix them.


With a spatula, slip the beaten egg-whites into the blender. Do the same with the cream.


Add the nutmeg and blend for a minute.


Pour this mixture into a freezer-safe jug and store in your freezer until very cold.


Serve the egg nog in festive glasses. Distribute the foam on top of each, and sprinkle with nutmeg. Adding additional whipped cream on top, or stiffening the drink with more liquor, is optional.


Makes 1.25 litres.
