Buy store-bought (supermarket brand is fine); add a shot of Maker's or Jack or, really, whatever you've got in the cabinet; enjoy.

The French name is Lait au Poulet....... translation is "Chicken Milk". I have never been able to drink it knowing that.

I've figured out the boy's punishment. First, he's grounded. No leaving the house, not even for school. Second, no egg nog. In fact, no nog, period.

We had a German Shepard years ago. She was our guard dog at my mom's ex's garage. She knocked over a carton of eggnog and a bottle of rum. She drank the rum, left the eggnog and slept through the next day.

I just finished up a batch of Coquito. Not the exact recipe I use, but essentially, a nog sans the egg yolk, with the condensed milk and cream of coconut taking on the fat and sugar elements of the nog. Full of rummy goodness...
 
2012-12-23 04:56:33 PM
Real 'nog, a'la my momma

This is not really 'my' recipe. I use Joy of Cooking's 'Eggnog in quantity' with a few revisions. The liquor
is what goes in a Brandy Alexander, and I got the idea from the Bartender's Guide, which has lots of
good eggnog combo suggestions. I substitute honey for some of the powdered sugar (somehow I figured
the substitution, intending it to be half and half), but you could either skip that, or use all honey, I am
not sure it would matter---there is enough booze and flavors, who would notice? It probably doesn't
change the texture that much either.

I also substitute half and half for whipping cream. I just can't bring myself to use/drink that much cream.

If you are concerned about raw eggs, you could use pasteurized eggs or whatever there is, and use
whipped cream for the topping.

Eggnog-from Aunt Cindy

Beat separately until light it color..............................................................12 egg yolks

Beat in gradually............................................................. ...1 ¾ cups powdered sugar, ¾ cup honey

Add very slowly, beating constantly.........................................................3 cups cognac

Let mixture stand covered for one hour to dispel the 'eggy' taste. (this is if you intend to serve it the
same day. I have friends who make eggnog and swear it has to sit a week, so that's what I aim for. In
that case, you don't have to do this part.)

Add, beating constantly..............................1 ½ cups each crème to cacao (light preferable) and dark rum.

Refridgerate until ready to serve.

Beat until stiff but not dry................................................................... ....8 to 12 egg whites

Fold them lightly into the other ingredients. Sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg. ( I recommend this---a
whole nutmeg is charming and it smells divine!)

I always do the same thing EVERY year... Around Christmas time I give in and buy a small carton of egg nog. Then when I bring it home, I pour myself a small 10 oz glass of it. Then I drink it and feel sick for the rest of the evening. Every year the glass gets smaller and smaller as I remember how it made me sick. I say "Oh, well I'll just make sure to have a smaller glass of it"

I love the taste of egg nog, but something about actual egg nog just sickens me. Maybe it's the protein from the eggs, or maybe just the sheer richness of it. I like egg nog "flavored" things, but I suspect that it's just the combination of egg nog spices and dairy that I like (i.e. Egg Nog Spice coffee with extra cream & sugar, or an egg nog shake)

I think I'm going to go and pick up some egg nog ice cream tonight. That should be OK.

Eggnog, here comes the hangover and spewing chunks of cheese.
 
2012-12-23 04:57:45 PM
Or stabilize the protein with gellan or carageenan. Or if you're not a chef make it a stirred custard like a very light anglaise. Equal parts milk and cream, salt and sugar to taste. Bring that to a simmer and temper in 3% egg yolks by weight and cook to 85C. Cool that down, season with nutmeg and add as much booze as you like.

That's a big 10-4, good buddy.

A shot of any stock blend (Bell's, Teacher's, even the better sort of rye) works fine as the sweetness and spice paper over any booze deficiencies.

This is also why people can stir in crap like Bacardi White and obtain similar panty removal/nap effects. For flavour, however, go with a shot of Gosling's or something pre-spiced, like Sailor Jerry's, which is far too candy-like a rum for me straight up, but works quite well in a booze-nog.

Probably it's the thought that you're slugging back something the consistency and volume of cold bull jizz.

I was told this by a farm vet. Luckily, I wasn't drinking eggnog at that moment. Could've ended badly.

I've found that if I do break down and buy the stuff, I have to cut it with milk to make it palatable. Retains the spicy characteristics but loses the thick sugary consistency.
 
2012-12-23 05:18:20 PM
I make the best eggnog. It's modified from the recipe I found online.

I top it off with a bit of brandy and everyone loves it.
 
2012-12-23 05:19:09 PM
The eggnog comes with alcohol already mixed in here. I still add more spices and sometimes throw in a bit more alcohol.
 
2012-12-23 05:19:29 PM

astouffer: Oh good, alcoholic pancake batter.


Pancake batter is far less unhealthy.

Seriously, egg nog has got to be the most dangerous culinary item on the planet. It's got the fat and sugar content of ice cream, but you can guzzle down a pint of it without thinking twice.

At least, I can. But I'm also fat.

I don't know how they get away with calling half a cup a serving.
 
2012-12-23 05:20:56 PM
Of course, I made my own eggnog last year. It was delicious, but considering that it costs about half as much to just buy the bottled stuff and doesn't require I whisk a bunch of eggs, it's easier to be lazy.
 
2012-12-23 05:22:37 PM
I had a pint of brandy and eggnog at my last Christmas party. And I felt fine.

/schuck it trebek
 
2012-12-23 05:28:41 PM
Back in my teenage years, my sister and her friend decided they could make egg-nog based on the ingredient list on the back of the carton they had just emptied. They made it, and put it into the carton and back into the fridge. That biatch.

chumboobler: The French name is Lait au Poulet....... translation is "Chicken Milk". I have never been able to drink it knowing that.


Actually, it's "lait de poule", milk FROM chickens. Lait au poulet would imply cow's milk mixed with chicken somehow. Poule is the living animal, poulet is the meat.
 
2012-12-23 05:51:09 PM
Will you people PLEASE just put out a punch bowl of Jack and a gallon of milk? My stomach knows the appropriate measurements for each and will act accordingly.

Thank you.
 
2012-12-23 05:52:45 PM
Grab some nog from the grocery store, then stop by the liquor store for a kicker. Done.

I love egg nog - but it has to be gourmet grade. I gave some to a foreign-exchange student friend who had never heard of it, and he pronounced that it tasted "like magic."

BWAHAHAHA. I am laughing SO hard at that right now.
As if the name in English wasn't enough to back up lunch to the top of my esophagus, knowing the French name takes it a a level of gastronomic disgust that raises the bar infinity.

There's something in there about turning water into wine, and adding a pillar of salt, I think. But nothing about eggnog. And they call themselves Christians...

I've taken to making my own these days, and people seem to like it. Even people that traditionally hate eggnog have liked it, which I take as a compliment.

Still can't get the wife to try it, though.

I can't stomach eggnog with alcohol in it.

Without alcohol, I'll drink a couple gallons of it this month. Goooood stuff.

Hey, check out Google Translate. It would have obviated the need for abject face-saving sarcasm.
