A centuries-old drink that has become a staple of the winter season, eggnog comes in many variations.

Separate 4 large organic eggs. Set aside the whites. In a blender, or using a whisk, whip the yolks well. Add ¾ cup (175 mL) sugar, 1 tsp (5 mL) nutmeg, ⅛ tsp (0.5 mL) allspice, clove and cinnamon (to taste) and 2 cups (500 mL) milk or cream (or 1 cup/250 mL each). Blend or whip well, about 2 minutes. Cover and chill, preferably overnight, to steep the flavours. Before serving, whip the egg whites into peaks, then fold into the liquid. This adds an incredible texture to the final drink.
