Christmas Cheer with a Shot of Cheer
Here’s one just for the adults. Of course you can skip the booze to make it family friendly, but why?
This eggnog is to die for. It tastes a little like custard pie in a glass rather than sugar milk like store bought eggnog. Not only does it make a nice holiday drink, it can also be used to make a decadent eggnog latte. Just use the eggnog in place of milk when making a latte.
This is an excellent drink to share while waiting for your turkey to cook.

Separate egg yolks into a blender or bowl mixer. Do not discard whites. Whip yolks until they lighten in colour. This is easiest if using farm fresh eggs as they are much more yellow than store bought. Once eggs are lighter, slowly add ⅓ cup of sugar and blend until completely mixed. Add the milk, cream, liquor, and vanilla and blend thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they start to peak. Slowly add 1 tbsp of sugar and continue whipping.
In a jug, whisk the egg white and sugar into the eggnog blend.
Serve over ice with a sprinkle of nutmeg, or shavings of fresh nutmeg on top.
