    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 ½ cups of the milk with the cinnamon, vanilla bean, cloves, peppercorns, ginger, cardamom pods and a hefty pinch of salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then turn off the heat and let it stand for 15 minutes.
    2. 2
      Strain the mixture through a sieve, discarding all of the solids except for the vanilla bean. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the milk; discard the vanilla pod.
    3. 3
      Wipe out the saucepan and return the milk to the pan over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, in a medium bowl beat the eggs with the sugar for two minutes, or until they are light and lemon colored. Add the heated milk in a stream, whisking gently.
    5. 5
      Return the egg-milk mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until it thickens and coats the back of the spoon, about four to six minutes. Do not let the mixture come to a simmer or the eggs will scramble.
    6. 6
      Quickly add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk to the pan to stop the cooking. Transfer the mixture to a pitcher and chill for at least two hours or until very cold.
    7. 7
      To serve, divide the eggnog among four chilled glasses, stir in a dash of brandy or rum, if desired, and top with a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg.

      Yum! Different and delicious. I prefer my eggnog warm and with rum, so that is how I had it. I will be making this every Christmas season. Thank you for a new take on an old classic! Made for the Football pool, 2013

      Well you knew that I was going to fall in love with this didn't you mike? I made it today with the intent of keeping it chilled until tomorrow (Christmas Eve). Don't get me wrong there will be some for the group, just not as much as I had originally thought *blush*. Simply lobe the spicing, I would never have thought of putting pepper in eggnog but I'm glad that someone else did! Thanks so much for sharing this eggnog twist that is now my current favorite. Going to use some to make my cranberry bread.....out of another batch of course, this one won't make it through Christmas, lol. Ooop's forgot to mention that I used Splenda for the sugar and made a double batch.
