Jenny Park ( http://spoonforkbacon.com ): Tis the season for friends, family, and a delicious glass of egg nog! Don't make the mistake of serving a store-bought variety. This festive holiday cocktail is actually quite easy to prepare, and you'll love this recipe which adds a little spice with the addition of star anise and cinnamon. Bottoms up! Cheers!
Star Anise and Cinnamon Infused Egg Nog Makes 1½ quarts (1½ L)
2 cups (480 mL) half & half 1 cup (240 mL) heavy cream 2 star anise 1 cinnamon stick 4 egg yolks ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar ¾ cup (180 mL) bourbon 4 egg whites ¼ tsp (1.25 mL) cream of tartar freshly grated nutmeg (garnish)
Place half & half, cream, star anise, and cinnamon stick into a saucepan and simmer. Once mixture has come to a simmer remove from heat and cover. Allow to steep for 30 minutes.
Pour mixture into a bowl, over an ice bath and allow to cool completely.
Place the egg yolks and sugar into a clean mixing bowl and mix together using a hand mixer until the mixture turns a pale yellow, about 3 minutes. Stir in the infused cream mixture and bourbon until fully incorporated. Set aside.
Pour egg whites and cream of tartar into a clean mixing bowl and whip (using a clean hand mixer) until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into the yolk mixture until fully incorporated and chill until ready to use.
