Eggnog is fast becoming more and more popular in Australia and this iced version is the perfect way to cool down on a hot Christmas day. There’s a lot of different recipes for eggnog out there, but many of them end up just tasting like sweet milk. This version is absolutely delicious though and full of Christmas flavour. Make a batch on Christmas Eve and serve it up as a special treat on Christmas day. If you really want to take things to the next level, add a dollop of whipped cream on top and dust with a little grated nutmeg.
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 cinnamon quills
3/4 cup pure (thin) cream
3/4 cup milk
100ml each brandy, rum & sherry
