Nothing says Holiday season like eggnog! However, CBD infused eggnog is delicious and easy to make. It's thick, creamy, and the perfect balance of flavors. Pairing it up with the right CBD is the key. This recipe will make you rethink the way you look at eggnog.
What Is Eggnog?
You might have a tradition of drinking it around the holidays, but what is eggnog? First of all the word “nog” is believed to be a combination of slang words. Modern translations refer to “nog” as strong ale because you traditionally add alcohol to eggnog. Also, the drink uses eggs so the name - Eggnog was given - eggs with nog drink, or eggnog.
This rich, chilled drink traditionally uses milk, cream, sugar, and whipped eggs. However, there exist vegan, or dairy free alternatives, and even sugar free ones. Of course this will take some research and a lot of modifications to get the recipe right. Also, you can now find coffee, tea, and desserts that use eggnog.
How To Make Eggnog
You’ll want to start off whisking the egg yolks and sugar together in a small bowl. Then combine milk, cream, nutmeg, and salt in a medium-high heat saucepan and stir until it simmers. Next, slowly add small spoonful's of the hot mixture into the egg mixture.
Once you have stirred in most of the mixture you’ll want to add the entire thing back to the saucepan. You’ll want to cook and whisk it for about a minute or two or until barely thickens; it will thicken more as it cools. Also, add the vanilla extract once you’ve taken it off the heat and refrigerate until chilled.
At this point you’re able to add either alcohol, CBD, or both. However, you’ll want to carefully choose what product to add because it can affect the flavor.
We recommend adding a CBD Tincture that will compliment your eggnog. The strength depends on the experience you want to have and how much eggnog you are making. If you’re using a higher strength CBD Tincture you won’t need to add very much. However, you want to be sure to add the CBD once the eggnog has been chilled.
You’ll want to choose an alcohol that will counteract the sweetness of the eggnog. It’s a very rich drink so adding Brandy, Bourbon, Rum, or Whisky is typically a good choice. Also, be sure you get something with high alcohol content to help balance the flavor. Just be careful because sugar tends to mask how much alcohol is in a drink so the alcohol can sneak up on you.
