No Christmas Eve would be complete without a glass of real egg nog, not that horrid stuff you buy by the carton.
As I said on the air today, I make this for myself using half the sugar, and skim milk. Dial in the variables to suit yourself. Also shaved dark chocolate on top is a nice touch. As is Fee Bros. Mint Bitters.
A couple of great suggestions from callers
The “Low Cal” and singeton version.
People as about the calories for the original recipe, somewhere between 1500 – 1600 total, call it 400 a serving. If you substitute 10%BF cream you save about 70 calories a serving. If you use skim you save over 100 per serving.
And for the beer drinkers in the crowd, the Beer I had John drinking is Duchesse de Burgogne
