Aged Eggnog

I actually don’t think I have taken pictures of anything this fast. I believe I gave this eggnog three minutes on my balcony. It was about -3 and during the shot it was snowing heavily. But then, when I could get inside and enjoy a nice cup of eggnog, it was all worth it. Eggnpg is a mix of cream and/or milk, alcohol, eggs, and spices.  This eggnog is prepared with raw eggs, so be sure that they are fresh. It is aged over time, thus you will not need to heat anything.  With age it matures in flavor. The original recipe says to start two to weeks prior consumption, so this is the perfect time if you want to enjoy it for Christmas.

Eggnog is the American answer to German Eierlikör. It tastes different, I actually prefer eggnog to Eierlikör. As stated, this recipe does not require you to heat up anything, the eggs are pasteurized with the alcohol and time. The Youtuber Adam actually did some research, if you are scared of salmonella, be sure to ages for a few weeks. Then you will be extra certain that it is safe to consume even for pregnant women. And it does intensify the flavor, so feel free to start now for Christmas.
