Coffee Egg Nog Recipe

Coffee Egg Nog Recipe

This is a rather special coffee drink, particularly suitable for daytime summer holiday festivities.

Ingredients : Serves 6-8

8 eggs, separated

225 g sugar

250 ml cold strong coffee

220 ml whisky, Bourbon, rum or brandy

220 ml cold double cream

120 ml whipped cream

Ground nutmeg, to decorate

Method :

In a clean bowl, thoroughly beat the egg yolks, then slowly add the sugar, mixing well. Place in a large saucepan, and heat gently over a low heat, stirring all the time with a wooden spoon. Remove the saucepan from the heat, allow to cool a few minutes, stir in the coffee and whisky, and then slowly add the cream, stirring well. Beat the egg whites until stiff and stir into the egg nog, mixing well. Pour into punch cups, top each with a small dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle nutmeg on top.


Tips : Use a little more sugar, if necessary, to avoid the cream and alcohol separating and curdling.
