Anyone like eggnog? VERY simple recipe in here!

Here's a VERY easy recipe for eggnog.

This recipe is a little unique in that it uses no cream, instead you use a submersible mixer to build up the airiness and froth and blend the ingredients well.

What you need:

2 cups of milk
3 eggs, 4 if you want a thicker, denser, high calorie eggnog
1 or 2 tsp of vanilla (I use 1)
1 tsp of nutmeg
1/2 tsp of clove powder, or 2-6 whole cloves (If you like clove add lots, otherwise stick with 2)
(Optional, 1tsp of cardamom powder or 2 bruised pods)

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, stick the mixer in and just whir away. After it's mixed up, hold the blades of the mixer just under the surface at an angle so the blades are bashing into the surface. It will start to bubble and froth and become full of air. Pour it into a glass spiked with rum if you're the drinky type.

If you've done it right it'll have an almost milkshake like consistency, and you'll get 4-5 glasses out of 2 cups of milk! You'll need to re-mix the drink in the bowl if you let the liquid sit for too long, and the volume in the cups will shrink rather quickly, so drink it fresh.

Delicious!

Paradoxbox, nice recipe.
You can get bigger and longer lasting volume by making your recipe with the egg yolks only and whisking the whites on the side into soft peaks.
Fold that back into your seasoned milk and yolk mix and enjoy.

I tried to move it, but it eluded my poor tired brain. (Been working all day)
Thank you move fairies for moving it.
