EGGNOG, a Christmas classic
Adapt a classic Christmas recipe with your usual Adamus.
Ingredients (12 servings)
350 ml Adamus Dry Gin
6 medium eggs
nutmeg, to taste
- Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl with 100g of sugar until the mixture is pale yellow and thick (we suggest using an electric handheld mixer for best results).
- Stir in the milk, double cream, and the Adamus Dry Gin. You can add a little grated nutmeg as well, if you like your nog this way.
- Pour the mixture into two 750ml pint bottles with stoppers and store in the fridge.
- Place the egg whites in a box and freeze until ready to serve the egg nog.
- When ready to serve, defrost the egg whites into a clean metal or glass bowl. Using a handheld electric mixer, whisk the egg whites until foamy and opaque. Add the remaining 50g of sugar and whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed.
- Pour the egg nog from the bottles into a large bowl and fold in the egg whites until well combined. Ladle the egg nog into glass tumblers and serve with a little freshly grated nutmeg over the top of each glass.
