Christmas drinks



Must try these two recipes.  

Can anyone tell me what egg nog

 tastes like?

How about homemade Baileys?  



HOMEMADE BAILEYS

Ingredients  :

         1 cup light cream (I used heavy whipping cream, which made it even richer)
        14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
        1 2/3 cup Irish whiskey (I used Jameson's)
        1 teaspoon instant coffee
         2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
        1 teaspoon vanilla


Instructions  :
1.      Combine all ingredients in a blender and set on high speed for 30 seconds.
2.     Bottle in a tightly sealed container and refrigerate. Shake before using.
3.     Will keep for up to 2 months. 



Ingredients :


6 eggs separated

¾ cup sugar
1 pint heavy cream (double)

4 pints milk

Bourbon (to taste)

Vanilla extract (one tablespoon)

Nutmeg


Directions :


Beat egg yolks with half a cup of the sugar until thick.  In another bowl beat the egg whites with a quarter of the sugar until thick.  Use another bowl to beat the cream until thick.  Add the cream to the yolks, fold in the egg whites and add the milk, Bourbon, vanilla and a pinch of nutmeg.  Chill & enjoy *

Please be aware you are using raw egg, so caution is advised *
