My mum has been making eggnog for the family for a really long time. Last year, I decided to step up and learn the recipe from here. This recipe is quite simple and if you follow the directions extensively, you will be able to get the hang of it.

To make eggnog, whisk egg yolk and sugar in a bowl and add slowly add milk to this mixture. Heat milk in a saucepan, add cream, nutmeg and salt to it. Pour the whisked mixture into the saucepan and stir constantly. Take it off the heat and vanilla extract to it. Garnish with cinnamon powder. 

Here are some other recipes available on the platform that you might wish to check out.

1. Milk Stout– Milk stout or cream stout is rich, chocolate roasted essences with pints of coffee and caramel present in it. There is only a subtle difference between milk stout and traditional dry stouts. The milk sugar balances the roasted bitterness present in stouts and is a smooth version of it.

2. Thai Iced Coffee– Thai Iced Coffee is somewhat similar to Thai Coffee. “Iced” suggests that it is refrigerated and then drunk. It is my favorite coffee and is capable of refreshing and soothing your dull mind. Thai Iced Coffee is the best stress-buster in summer.

3. Purple Haze Drink– The name of this drink is due to its purple color and this drink looks beautiful once done. Yes, the taste is also mind-blowing. This drink consists of alcohol and I think kids and infants should be kept away from it.

4. Bacardi Mojito Bacardi is always the favorite of many alcohol lovers and they love to improvise this brand in many ways and here it is, the Bacar di Mojito recipe. This drink is good at the taste and will make you refreshed at the same time.
