On the Eighth day of Christmas Eight maids a-milking...

Milk, come on! How do we connect Milk to estate agency? We don’t, but we can share our pretty tasty eggnog recipe with you which is much more relevant at this time of year.

Serves 8

  • 700ml whole milk
  • 1 cup 240ml heavy or double cream
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 vanilla bean pod, split and seeds removed
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus more for garnish
  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 130g cup granulated sugar
  • 175ml Bacardi Dark Rum, or bourbon
  1. In a saucepan, combine milk, cream, cinnamon, vanilla bean, vanilla seeds, and nutmeg. Bring to the boil over a medium heat. Once boiling, remove from the heat and allow to steep.
  2. In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat egg yolks and sugar until combined and thick ribbons form when the whisk is lifted. Slowly whisk in the milk and continue to mix until the mixture is combined and smooth. Add bourbon or rum, and stir. Refrigerate overnight or for up to 3 days.
  3. Before serving, beat the egg whites in a large bowl or stand mixer until soft peaks form. Gently fold into eggnog until combined. Serve and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
