Christmas isn’t Christmas without a belly full of dangerously alcoholic egg nog. Not in my book anyway.
For 6-8 glasses you need
1/2 pint double cream
1/2 pint milk
4 tbsp icing sugar
3 measures each rum, brandy and whisky
freshly grated nutmeg
cocktail cherries to serve
Place everything apart from the nutmeg and cherries into a blender and blend for 2-3 mins till smooth and thoroughly combined. Strain through a fine meshed sieve into a jug and decorate with lashings of freshly grated nutmeg. Serve topped with enough cocktail cherries to just make you start to feel rather sick. Hic.
