One of the main features of this meal is the traditional Eggnog.
I am told that our children would not think this is a complete celebration unless we have this yummy drink.
There is often some left over which is quickly dispatched by breakfast time on Christmas Day.
I would like to share our recipe that is a big hit when ever we have anyone visit and we have this special drink.
Our Traditional Christmas Eggnog:
1 cup sugar (no not these days, maybe 1/2 -3/4)
4 cups of cream chilled
4 cups of milk chilled
4 extra cups of milk (you could add whisky but this is for children in our family)
2-4 ounces of vanilla
Beat egg whites till foamy
Gradually add sugar until whites are beginning to stiffen
In another bowl beat egg yolks till they drop from the spoon in a heavy ribbon
Combine the two mixtures
In another bowl whip the cream until it is stiff add to the above mixture and stir gradually
Stir in the milk
Pour into serving bowl and add the vanilla then sprinkle the top with nutmeg.
This is the double batch from last year :)
I do hope you enjoy and please let me know what you think.
