Christmas Egg Nog

 

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

 

Ingredients

 

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.
