- 6 eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 110 grams sugar, (I use rapadura)
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1 litre Milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 pinches ground nutmeg
- 2 pinches ground cinnamon
- 250 grams booze!, rum, bourbon, brandy... anything you like
- 120 grams cream
- xanthan gum, See instructions for amounts
Fit butterfly into TM bowl. Tare. Add eggs, egg yolks, sugar and salt to bowl. Note the weight. Beat on speed 3 for 30 seconds or until blended and frothy.
Keeping the butterfly in place, tare, add milk, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Note the weight. Beat again on speed 3 for about 20 seconds. Then cook for 10 minutes on 70 degrees, speed 3.
If drinking it hot, add alcohol and cream (if using). Mix for 30 seconds or so on speed 3. It should be nice and frothy by now! Serve and enjoy.
If drinking cold, cool the mixture in the fridge. Whip the cream in the TM until soft peaks form. Set aside. Without cleaning bowl and with butterfly still in place, return milk mixture to TM, add alcohol and blend for 30 seconds or so on speed 3. Fold in whipped cream and serve immediately
To thicken the eggnog: After adding all the ingredients you are using add up the ingredient weights (don't forget the cream and booze if you used it), remove the butterfly, sprinkle in a little Xanthan Gum, then process at speed 5 for 15 seconds. Some suggested amounts:
0.2 grams/100 grams eggnog - Creamy mouth feel, not too thick
0.3 grams/100 grams eggnog - Pretty close to what we get in grocery stores in the USA
0.4 grams/100 grams eggnog - Very thick. If whipped on high speed you'll get what amounts to dense liquid foam.
Accessories you need
When making this thick version of the eggnog, you'll need a scale that measures in 0.1 gram increments.
This delicious Christmas drink can be served all year round, as you can serve it hot in winter and cold in summer.Adjust the spices to your own tastes. My "pinches" are quite generous.
Use whatever alcohol you like. I like half brandy, half cuban rum. It is quite a stong drink. Enjoy it responsibly.
