Warm milky, boozy eggs might sound like the last thing you want to swig down, but it's time to give in and let the eggy goodness wash over you.

The Americans might claim it as their own, but eggnog is actually an English drink based on the medieval "posset" - a mix of warm curdled milk and ale. Delightful.

If you've not tried it before, a silky, warming cup full of brandied 'nog is a winner. Sure, all that cream and sugar means you are on the highway to diabetes - but it is Christmas.

Masterchef winner Mat Follas shares his recipe for the best 'nog this side of Santa's grotto.

Christmas eggnog recipe


INGREDIENTS

  • 6 eggs
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 600ml milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg
  • Rum, bourbon or brandy to taste
  • 150ml plain yogurt

METHOD

You will need a cooking thermometer for this recipe.

Don’t be scared of raw eggs in eggnog; we gently cook them in this recipe.

Place 4 eggs, 2 egg yolks, caster sugar and milk in a saucepan. Heat slowly whilst stirring continuously; bring the temperature up to 72°C then remove the saucepan from the heat and keep stirring until it has cooled to around 60°C, this will take about 5 minutes.

Once it is below 60°C, pour the mixture through a sieve to capture any overcooked lumps. Add the vanilla extract and the nutmeg, stir and refrigerate the mixture.

Once cool, add the plain yogurt and gently whisk together for a delicious and refreshing eggnog.

You can add other flavours in place of the vanilla and nutmeg and/or use double cream in place of the yogurt.

Slosh in some rum or bourbon for a grown up drink full of festive cheer.

Mat’s top tip: Use double cream instead of yogurt if you’re adding alcohol.
