Spicy Eggnog

Spicy Eggnog

The season of eggnog might be over, but it is so cold in Provence these days, that I craved something warm and spicy to help my blood circulate. So how about a spicy eggnog? My inspiration has been the wonderful book from Rosalee de la Foret, Alchemy of Herbs. However, I changed the recipe a bit, as I don't support dairy. Nevertheless, this eggnog tastes amazing and it is exactly THAT drink you would like to cozy up with on a cold winter evening.

Spicy Eggnog


2 fresh organic egg yolks

2 cups coconut milk

1 tbsp coconut or muscovado sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

3 cloves

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp nutmeg powder

1/4 tsp ginger powder

1 tbsp whiskey/ rum (optional)

How to:

1. Heat the milk with cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger powder. I prefer to grind my spices just before making the recipe as the aroma and taste is incomparable.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks with sugar.

3. While still whisking, pour a bit of the hot liquid on the egg yolk - sugar mixture.

4. Now add the egg-yolk - sugar mixture to the coconut milk, heat on very low (do not let boil!). Add alcohol, if desired and a bit of grated nutmeg.
