Juniper Eggnog

  • 50ml/2oz Beefeater Winter Edition Gin
  • 50ml/2oz milk
  • 50ml/2oz cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 clove
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

Method: In a saucepan, gently heat the milk, cinnamon, cloves and vanilla essence, removing just before it comes to the boil. In a separate bowl, whisk the sugar and egg yolk until fluffy, and slowly add to the saucepan. Gently heat until it forms a custard texture, then take it off the heat, strain, and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Add the gin and cream, and return back to the fridge overnight. Serve in cups with a grating of nutmeg and a juniper berry.
