Holiday beverage (contains alcohol; not for children). I haven't tried this yet, but it sounds creamy and decadent. For those who love eggnog, you'll be on cloud nine when you take a sip of this! This takes approximately six hours to chill; the recipe recommends chilling overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
- Combine milk, cloves, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and cinnamon in a saucepan, and heat over lowest setting for 5 minutes. Slowly bring milk mixture to a boil.
- In a large bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until fluffy. Whisk hot milk mixture slowly into the eggs. Pour mixture into saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 3 minutes, or until thick. Do not allow mixture to boil. Strain to remove cloves, and let cool for about an hour.
- Stir in rum, cream, 2 teaspoon vanilla, and nutmeg. Refrigerate overnight before serving.
