Im going to make some of this wacky stuff this year. Has anyone tried it. Is it session material or one tipple and your toppled?

also I want to find more food-and-drinkesque traditions from all over the world to try out. Does anyone have anymore to add to the list?

...and egg nog.



6 eggs
1 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup brandy
1/3 cup dark rum (Captain Morgan for best flavor, but Myers is OK)
2 cups whipping cream
2 cups milk
All liquids should be very cold. Refrigerate in advance.
Beat the eggs for 2 or 3 minutes with an electric mixer at medium speed until very frothy. Gradually beat in the sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Turn the mixer off and stir in the cold brandy, rum, whipping cream and milk Chill before serving. Sprinkle individual servings with more nutmeg

wouldnt advise trying to get pissed on just this..a fine starter to have one or two though..

I recommend Green and Black's - it's organic and fairly traded and is intensely chocolatey (much more so than any of the more commercial brands)

..yeah I think its cadburys..I watched a programme on the guys who make it..and they were all about how independant they were and how the choc was real and all..at the end there was some postscript about how a certain percentage of the company was bought out by a big choc maker for a bucket load because people were raving about their choc..or something.

I imagine they would still be fair trade. It still says so on the packets.

Quite lot of large companies are realising that fair trade brands are very popular and want to get into the market.
