Seems like summer is slowly coming to an end. The first drizzly, cold days make me think of pumpkin pies and Christmas. Yes, yes I know, this is still a few months out. But my summer holiday is over and I need something to look forward to.
Eggnog is the perfect treat if it’s wet and windy outside. But once I had a look at how eggnog is made it kind of lost all it’s appeal. This alternative is much more to my linking. Smooth, creamy, boozy and entirely without eggs.

  • 250ml cream
  • 80ml rum
  • 100g sugar
  • 60g cornstarch

  • 1 stick cinnamon 

_ combine cornstarch, sugar, cinnamon stick, nutmeg and milk in a saucepan
