The recipe for a homemade egg nog. With a Dutch twist. It's a recipe with alcohol, that's super easy and really delicious.
Do you know the feeling? Again and again you see the same dish. Every where you look. And my tasting pupils want to try it. I've ran in to it. Around Christmas time all the English / American blogs go on egg-nog. A traditional drink that's made and drank at Christmas time. I thought that could be a sign. I should make that!
Unfortenately we can't buy ready-made egg-nog. But we've got something similar as I look at the ingredients that are being used in the egg-nog. It's called advocaat around here. So I took that as a base. I added spices, seasoning and some other great stuf. And the result... very nice (I've put the remainder in the refrigerator to taste with our friends tonight). I always like to start our dinner party with a cocktail and this will be the right one for this evening!
- this is a cocktail dip the top of the glass in some advocaat and then in caster sugar. The sugar will get the color of the advocaat and will look beautiful.
- fresh nutmeg got a lot more taste than grounded nutmeg, so buy whole nutmeg and grate whenever you need it.
- if you want to vary in egg nog flavors, try Bourbon or Marakesh as a substitute for whiskey, Kahlua and Rum.
- For an even more robust flavor use dark brown sugar.
- You get an even more winter feeling when you substitute cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves with 3 teaspoons gingerbread spices.
- top it with some whipped cream
- not with but egg nog is a great base to prepare pudding, ice cream or pie
- egg nog is delicious with some coffee or in a milkshake
- you can store this egg nog 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator.
- don't freeze you're egg nog because the structure will change.
Other winter drink
It's a good taste!
