The holidays are here, and we promise, we’re not trying to make you intentionally drunk to go see grandma. Everybody loves eggnog, that’s a fact. In our latest how-to guide Steven Bright explains how to make holiday ready (probably alcoholic) eggnog suited to aid anyone in surviving the holidays with their family.
Pinnacle Vodka/Rum/Brandy (whatever you’d like)
1.) In a large pan, preferably the one you throw at your spouse when you suspect him of cheating…
Mix milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla to create the eggnog mixture. Make sure you stir the mixture at all times. Failing to actually stir the mix will cause it to burn and stick to the bottom of the pan (this is a no no!).
2.) Shake those eggs like you’ve never shaken something before (don’t allow granny to do this, that’s a mental image most won’t be able to get out of their head).
With the sugar; eggs, and yolk combined them all in another bowl to create the egg mixture. Whisk or beat until fluffy. (fluffy is good!).
3.) Slow and steady wins the race in this case!
Now you’ve got two different mixtures ready to be (SLOWLY!) combined together. The eggs must be tempered for this to work, which simply means, to add the egg mixture to the original mixture slowly and carefully. Adding them together to fast may cause the eggs to curdle which will turn your eggnog into something similar one might find in a community cooking class.
Cook it on medium heat for 3-5 minutes.
4.) Remove the mixture from the stove top
Let it cool for about an hour or so, go watch an episode of Orange is the New Black on Netflix.
5.) Now you can stir in the ingredients that will make this eggnog worth the taste!
(You can add whatever you’d like: rum; brandy, etc).
6.) Cover tightly and set it in the fridge compartment for at least 24 hours. (Cover tightly!) this will allow the flavors and mixtures to combine well and come out totally awesome tomorrow morning!.
