Eggnog

There is little that says Christmas better than the beverages that you sip as you sit around the tree with your family. These traditional beverages are easy to make and great to taste.

Ingredients

1 cup milk (250 ml)

2 eggs

2 spoons of powdered sugar

1 Tablespoon Chocolate Syrup (30 ml)

1 Table Spoon Whiskey

1 Tablespoon Creme de Cacao

Method

Separate the egg yolk and egg whites. Whisk the egg whites till they are nice and frothy.

Separately blend the egg yolk, sugar and chocolate syrup. Add a spoonful of milk to make it easier to blend.

Pour the milk into a glass and add the above blended paste. Stir in the egg whites gently.

Now add the Whiskey and Creme de Cacao to the glass.

Note - For kids you can remove the alcohol and increase the sugar

Mulled Wine

Mulled Wine

This one can take some time and effort but its well worth it when you sit back with a glass of mulled wine wine in your hand. Imagine the warmth flowing through right into the cockles of your heart.

Ingredients -

750 ml Red wine (use a Merlot or a Shiraz)

1 teaspoon caramelized sugar

1/2 cup Brandy

6-8 cloves

1 stick cinnamon

Zest of Orange from half an orange

Any other spice that you might have a yearning for

Method

Pour the wine into a pan and put it on a low flame.

Add the Orange Zest and some bit of juice to the wine.

Add all the remaining ingredients one by one to the pan making sure that the wine does not come to a boil.

As the steam begins to rise from the wine switch off the flame and serve it in glasses.

Note - You can sieve out the seasoning for a clear mulled wine or leave some of it in to lend it a better flavor as you sip.

      Sounds great! Any tips on making the raw eggs more safe to drink in the eggnog? Last year, I may nog with raw eggs (and rum and bourbon), but some neighbors wouldn't drink it because they said the raw eggs were dangerous.
