Egg Nog

Egg Nog cocktail with eggs, sugar, brandy, rum, milk, and cream

We’re big nog junkies ’round these parts, so we’ve tried many different recipes over the years. This one from legendary barman Jeffrey Morgenthaler is our favorite – delicious, complex, but not too fussy to make.

This recipe makes about 4-6 servings, and is perfect for scaling up. Once mixed up, you needn’t drink it all right away. In fact, it’ll get even better the longer you leave it in the refrigerator, up to at least a month and perhaps longer! The amount of alcohol in the recipe is more than enough to kill off any bacterial baddies that might hitch a ride in on the eggs.

Unlike many recipes, Morgethaler’s eggnog doesn’t call for nutmeg in the mix. It has a tendency to settle to the bottom of the vessel, and doesn’t really add much to the flavor of the drink (nutmeg is meant to be smelled more than tasted). Instead of putting it in the blender with the rest of the ingredients, save it and instead grate it over each drink as you serve it.

Ingredients

Instructions

Beat the eggs in a blender for one minute, on medium speed (you can also whisk them in a bowl instead). Keep blending as you slowly add in the sugar, and then the remaining ingredients.

Chill thoroughly – at least 4 hours, better if overnight. Serve in any little glass you like, and garnish with fresh-grated nutmeg.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
