retro vodka eggnog anyone?

This is another recipe I came across in my gorgeous book ‘Beginner’s guide to keeping chickens’, by Lee Faber. In which she states:

Caution this recipe uses raw eggs I am using my own free range organic chook eggs for this recipe. If not, pregnant women, the elderly, very young, or those with a compromised immune system should avoid eating purchased uncooked eggs.

Grab yourself:

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) caster sugar
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) vanilla extract
  • 450 ml (15 fl oz) whole milk
  • 300 ml (10 fl oz) single cream
  • 120 ml (4 fl oz) vodka
  • Freshly grated nutmeg

How too:

  • Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until well blended. Stir in the vanilla extract, milk cream and vodka.
  • Whisk the egg whites till soft peaks form. Fold them thoroughly into the egg and milk mixture and refrigerate till cold.
  • Serve in coffee mugs or glasses, dusted with freshly grated nutmeg and scattered sweets on the side if you fancy it!

  1. Times like this I wish I was in Japan… Their eggs are to die for. Or maybe I should move next to Martha Stewart. Did you know she sells her eggs for $10 a dozen? At least it’s cheaper than moving to Japan. I absolutely love the fact that you have your own chickens. I need to find me a good local farmer to buy some. Egg nog (true egg nog like yours not the ones in the dairy section) really remind me of the spirit of Christmas. It warms you from the inside. Love the blue lined mugs. So cozy!

  2. I’m a reluctant eggnog fan–but I think it’s because I have been force-fed the store-bought stuff my whole life (without alcohol, which would go a looooong way towards helping it). But. This. Sounds. A. MAZ. ING. Totally trying this!!!
