Directions
8 STEPS
1
In a large saucepan, combine milk, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Heat on low for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2
In a separate large bowl, whisk together egg yolks and sugar for 1 minute until well combined.
3
Increase the heat under the saucepan to medium-high and stir the milk mixture constantly until it just starts to boil. Immediately remove from heat.
4
Slowly whisk about 1/4 of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolk and sugar mixture. Then pour the egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan, whisking to combine.
5
Place saucepan back on the stove over medium heat, whisking constantly for 3 minutes. The mixture will thicken slightly.
6
Pour the hot eggnog into a large bowl or beverage container and let it cool at room temperature for 1 hour.
7
After 1 hour, stir in heavy cream, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and ground nutmeg. Mix well.
8
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving, allowing the flavors to meld and the mixture to cool completely.
