According to tradition, it is made with whipped eggs, sugar, milk or cream (or both), brandy and rum or bourbon, and it is garnished with cinnamon sticks and nutmeg. It is often offered to guests in a large bowl, from which they can help themselves.
However, we are not going to see the traditional recipe of Eggnog, we are going to see a great variation: Eggnog With Wine in the Jeffrey Morgenthaler method, as it is called.
It is a variation that instead of brandy, rum and bourbon, it includes Amontillado Sherry and Tequila! Apart from that, all the other ingredients are a part of this recipe just like a typical Eggnog! The taste is delicious and the combination of the Sherry and the Tequila is extraordinary and is well-worth tasting.
So why don’t you try the Eggnog with Wine recipe for this year’s Christmas time and check for yourself?
- 75ml / 2 & 1/2 parts Amontillado Sherry
- 60ml / 2 parts Anejo Tequila
- 88gr granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 180ml / 6 parts whole milk
- 120ml / 4 parts heavy cream
- Freshly-grated nutmeg (for the garnish)
- Cinnamon sticks (for the garnish)
Beat the eggs in a blender or a stand mixer in low speed until they become smooth. Add the granulated sugar slowly until it dissolves in the eggs. Continue with adding the Amontillado Sherry, Tequila, milk and heavy cream slowly, one by one until they incorporate. Put the mixture in the refrigerator for a night or for a few hours and pour the mixture in a cocktail glass or a punch glass. Add the freshly grated nutmeg and a cinnamon stick in each glass and serve!
