With the holidays just around the corner, I thought I would give you a few drink recipes to try before it was time to actually serve the guests. The first one is Eggnog. This is a very simple and a very good recipe. At least, my family likes it.
Eggnog Beat until light: 3 eggs Beat in gradually: 6 Tablespoons sugar (scant half cup) Pinch of salt (a few grains) 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract Stir in: 2 1/4 cups evaporated milk Diluted with 3/4 cup water
If alcoholic flavor is desired omit the vanilla extract and add 1/2 cup rum, brandy or whiskey (your choice, but only use one of them.) I prefer the rum. Place eggnog in a jar with a screw top. Permit to "ripen" in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Serve cold with a sprinkle of nutmeg on the top. You can add a dollop of whipped cream to the top before sprinkling the nutmeg, but it isn't necessary.
If all this is too much for you, you can always go buy a quart of it at the grocery store and then add the alcohol to it and let it sit for 24 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
