One of the classic holiday beverages is definitely eggnog. Even though you can easily find some in supermarkets during winter season, homemade versions hands down outshine these often much too sweet products. Plus, making some at home is quite simple. All you need is: milk, eggs, sugar,and aromas such as cinnamon or nutmeg.
SIMPLY DELICIOUS: Although eggnog is usually served cold, it can sometimes be served hot as well, especially in icy weather (just like mulled wine and spiced orange juice!).

Vanilla bean, cut in half and scraped
35% whipped cream
Alcohol of your choice (Bourbon, rum, cognac, etc.) (optional)
In a small pan, infuse the milk with the spices and vanilla beans over medium heat.
Then, beat the egg yolks with the sugar.
Note: The mixture should whiten slightly.
Slightly warm up the egg yolk mix by adding a bit of hot milk. Then, add the remaining milk.
Note: Do these steps while whisking continuously to prevent the yolks from turning into an omelet.
In the same pan, heat the preparation over low heat. Wait until the mixture thickens slightly and coats the spoon. The preparation must not boil.
Remove from heat. Incorporate the cream and alcohol. Finally, cover and let cool in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.
Strain and serve with ice cubes.
It’s possible to leave ou the alcohol in this recipe so children can also enjoy it. However, you could also split the eggnog recipe in half from step 2 to 5 (after adding the 35% cream). Then, simply incorporate 125 ml (½ cup) of your alcohol of choice to one half and keep the other one for kids. They will love the comforting taste of this homemade eggnog.
