Here are a few ideas.
This past year one of the recipes that I got the most feedback on was the non-alcoholic mead recipe. So I figured I would post it again along with a recipe on eggnog that I found in cyberspace. Hope that you enjoy.
Soft (non-alcoholic) Mead
4 cups spring water
1 cup honey
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 lemon, sliced
1 orange, sliced
Bring the water, honey, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon to a boil in a non-metallic pan.
Stir until honey is dissolved; heaviness should disappear from bottom of the pan.
Use wooden spoon to skim off skin that forms at top of brew.
Add lemon and orange slices, squeezing as they are placed in the pan.
Cool completely; strain.
Store in bottle in refrigerator. courtesy of clannada.org
Indulgent Eggnog Recipe
2 + ½ cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups whole milk
1 cup caster sugar
½ cup brandy
½ cup dark rum
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon nutmeg, ground or grated (fresh is best)
Begin with pre-chilled ingredients for the greatest end result.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs together hard until they're very frothy.
Add sugar and continue beating.
Sprinkle in nutmeg and vanilla.
A little at a time, add in the whipping cream, continuing to beat.
Again, only a little at a time, beat in the milk.
Finally, beat in the rum and brandy.
Give your arms a break from all that beating by putting the eggnog in the fridge to chill for 1 – 2 hours.
