Favorite Christmas Nogs and Toddys

It is the Season once again and I would be most appreciative of any Christmas drinks you are fond of to, shall we say, take the chill off. :wink:

Here's the one I've been making for years.

Be very, very careful to whom you serve it.

Eggnog


Ingredient Quantity

Eggs, separated 12
Sugar, granulated 1 1/2 Cups
Milk, whole 2 Quarts
Bourbon 750 ml
Brandy 750 ml
Heavy Cream 1 Quart
Salt Pinch
Nutmeg, whole Grated


Method:

1) Cream egg yolks together with one cup of the sugar.

2) Thoroughly incorporate milk and cream.

3) Add bourbon and brandy and combine thoroughly.

4) Chill for several hours, covered.

5) Whip egg whites with salt and remaining sugar until stiff
peaks form.

6) Thoroughly incorporate beaten egg whites into milk mixture.

7) Grate nutmeg either over the entire bowl or onto individual
cups of the eggnog.

Chef - that sounds like a good one. I might substitute 1.5 L of Rum for the Bourbon and Brandy (personal taste). :wink:

My uncle made pretty much the same recipe for years except that a 750 of rum was also added. It was known as egg grog for obvious reasons.

This is very similar to the Baltimore Egg Nog that my dad used to serve at their annual Christmas open house parties. It is indeed a dangerous drink. The dairy fat seems to hide the alcohol in a manner that allows people who normally don't drink much to consume a serious amount of alcohol (which in this case is only maybe three little punch glasses).

There were usually several victims at each party. Great stuff, though!

Everyone loves this hot buttered rum:

1.5 tsp superfine sugar
1" cinnamon stick
3 oz rum
1 cup hot milk
1 Tbs unsalted butter
ground nutmeg

12-oz mug

Run hot water into mug, empty it. Place sugar, cinnamon and rum in cup; stir to dissolve sugar. Pour in hot milk, top with butter, sprinkle w/nutmeg.
