Egg-nog — milk punchBack
DESCRIPTION OF THE DISH
Egg-nog is a flavourful cold drink made with milk, spices, and chicken eggs.
Scotland is believed to be the birthplace of this unusual milk punch. Yet, egg-nog became so popular with the Americans that it has long become a traditional Christmas drink in the US and Canada.
It is usually made of whipped egg whites, milk, cream and sugar, giving egg-nog its silky texture and tasty-looking creamy foam. Yet, the drink gets its special flavour from spices: cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, — and quite a bit of alcohol: rum, whiskey or brandy.
Such unexpected combination of ingredients makes the taste explode in your mouth! Enjoy the mind-blowing spicy Scottish cocktail — feel the spirit of the coming holidays.
You can make a soft egg-milk mixture non-alcoholic or vegetarian by adding vegetable cashew milk.

The spicy drink with a “kick” for a big group of friends is ready!
A little secret: experts advise keeping the drink in the fridge for at least one night to make the taste of the egg-nog rich and flavourful. There is no need to worry about its freshness — alcohol will preserve the ingredients safely.
In case you are convinced that any dish containing chicken eggs has to be cooked, make the boiled egg-nog. The high temperature will reveal the full taste of spices and give the cocktail a delicate baked milk flavour.
|Fresh chicken eggs||2 pcs|
|Milk by RudТМ||250 ml|
|33 % fat cream||75 ml|
|Bourbon or dark rum||80 ml|
|A pinch of salt|
|Vanilla (vanilla extract)||to taste|
Pour milk into a small saucepan, add a pinch of salt and spices, except vanilla. Heat the milk on low heat until it starts steaming. There is no need to boil the mixture. Take off the heat, let the milk get infused with the spices, and strain through a fine tea sieve.
Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Put the egg whites in the fridge and grind the egg yolks with sugar until they become a light creamy mass, and add the spicy milk slowly while stirring.
Put the mixture on low heat and heat for 10 minutes. The perfect temperature would be 70 °C. Remove from heat. Add the cream and vanilla extract.
When the milk cools down, slowly add the alcohol, and stir the mixture with a whisk. Leave the cocktail in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours.
Before serving the cocktail, whisk the whites to a thick shiny froth and carefully pour the spicy milk-egg mixture in. Sprinkle the cocktail with ground nutmeg and pour into crystal cups or cocktail tumbler glasses. Enjoy!
