Our traditional eggnog recipe for Christmas…

….

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
it has been a while since we had a Food Friday post with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas but here we are again.
Every season has its traditional drink like refreshing bowls for summer or hot apple cider for fall so does winter – especially Christmas season. I traditionally crave my first eggnog of the season after watching “A Christmas Vacation” with Chevy Chase. One of the best Christmas movies ever (have a look at all the movies I have seen so far here). There is one scene in particular where Clark and his cousin Eddie enjoy a glass of tradidional eggnog in these adroable moose glasses and that always gets me in the mood for it.

The glasses are sold on amazon but they are too expensive for my taste. But you can find them here if you like

So here is the recipe for a traditional eggnog. I personally like mine hot but you can enjoy it cooled as well.

Ingredients:
– 500 ml milk (I use oat milk or lactose free milk)
– 150 ml heavy cream
– 1 pinch of cinnamon 
– 1 pinch of nutmeg
– 1 vanilla bean
– 4 egg yolks
–  80 gr. of sugar
– bourbon or rum (if you want but not necessary at all)
– mix the milk, heavy cream, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a big pot
– gently remove the mark of the vanilla bean and stir it into your milk mixture
– heat it up but don´t let it cook at all
– take a separate bowl and mix together 4 eggs yolks and the sugar
– stir until light and fluffy

– take your heated milk mixture and slowly stir into your egg mixture (make sure to stir all the time)
– put the whole mixture back in the pot and heat up again on medium heat 
– be sure to stir all the time until the mixutre starts to thicken, this is when your eggnog is ready
– you can now enjoy it hot immediately or cool it down and serve it ice cold
 – add a shot of bourbon or rum into the glass before serving if anybody likes it this way
 I am so looking forward to serving and drinking our traditional Christmas drink at Christmas day. Do you guys have any signature drinks you make every year. 
Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Food Friday – fruity and refreshing summer bowl recipe…

Hello my dearest friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung-Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

 it is another Friday which means another recipe. The past six weeks have been the hottest we have ever had and I really like the hot summer weather but the temperatures have been too high.


So I was searching for ways to cool us down and help us to survive the heat. How about a nice and refreshingly cool drink to start with. We had been to a Mexican restaurant months ago and they had a drink on their specials which was pretty delicious but I don´t really know what was in there so I tried to copy it as good as possible. In the end it didn´t look like the restaurant drink at all, but I was fine with my “own” version I have created and all of our BBQ guests liked it too.

So here is my super easy and quick summer bowl recipe. 

Ingredients:
– 1 bottle of rosé wine (take whichever you like)
– 1 bottle of Schweppes Tonic Water
– blueberries
– raspberries
– lemon balm or mint

– put in the fruits
– fill in the drinks (I used both bottles and added one bottle of cold water too)
– mix everything together and store in fridge
– add some crashed ice before serving it
– lemon balm is optional but I really loved the look and the taste of it


 Hope you are having some fun weekend plans. Today is Florian´s bachelor party and tomorrow is his grandma´s birthday so there is lots of celebrating over here.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
