The BEST Eggnog Ever!

Well, maybe someone else has had better eggnog. But I don’t like eggnog, and I did like this. A lot. And it isn’t raw, it’s pretty rich, and it isn’t as sweet as most eggnog.


6 egg yolks
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar

Whisk ingredients together in heavy-bottomed sauce-pan.


1 cinnamon stick
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp orange zest
1/4 tsp vanilla

Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, until a bit thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.


1/2 cup milk whisked with 1/2 cup creme fraiche or heavy cream.
Splash of brandy or cognac

Serve warm, with a sprinkle of cinnamon or chocolate shavings.
