It’s getting cold outside, the snow is starting to fall and the fireplace is crackling, YEP it’s getting close to the holidays. The holidays can be filled with the hustle and bustle of entertaining, shopping and enjoying family and friends. But being engaged, newly married or heck if you’re like me and been married for a while you still need to set some time aside to enjoy snuggling up with your hunny.
So today’s Thirsday Thursday features some fabulous christmas cocktails for couples, made especially for you and your partner to enjoy during the holidays.
2 quarts whole milk
2 2/3 cups sugar
1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped
16 large egg yolks
2 cups cold heavy cream
1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 cup dark rum
Freshly grated nutmeg, for sprinkling
Heat milk, sugar, and vanilla bean and seeds in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisking until sugar has dissolved. Whisk yolks in a large bowl. Pour hot milk mixture into yolks in a slow, steady stream, whisking.
Return milk-yolk mixture to pan, and cook over medium-low heat, whisking often, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 20 minutes (do not let simmer). Pour through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard bean. Whisk in cream, bourbon, and rum. Let cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour (up to 1 day). Serve sprinkled with nutmeg.
We’ve given you the perfect ingredients for a fun filled night cuddling up with your special someone. Now, go have fun!
