What is Gingerbread Eggnog?
Gingerbread Eggnog, historically also known as milk punch or egg milk punch, is a rich, chilled, sweetened, dairy-based beverage. It is traditionally made with milk, cream, sugar, whipped egg whites, and egg yolks (which gives it a frothy texture, and its name). In some contexts, distilled spirits such as brandy, rum, whisky or bourbon are added to the drink.
1. 1. Separate the eggs setting aside the egg whites to use later.
2. Add the Sugar and Crumbs Gingerbread Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar and the plain white icing sugar to the yolks.
3. Stir with a wooden spoon until combined and then use an electric whisk to beat until very pale yellow. Do not skip the step with the wooden spoon or you’ll disappear in a cloud of icing sugar!
4. Add the milk to the yolks and sugar and whisk until smooth. Stir in the cream and the whisky.
5. Place in the fridge and chill for at least an hour.
6. When you’re ready to serve first whisk the egg whites until thick and fluffy and then gently fold into the chilled eggnog. This should make it nice with a thick froth of egg white on the top.
7. To serve, pour out the eggnog and top each glass with a sprinkling of ground ginger or cinnamon (or both).
*I like to add a pinch of edible glitter and place a cinnamon stick on the rim but these are of course optional flourishes.
