|This mug was a Christmas present from my mom. She has me pegged pretty well :)|
Adjustments I made from her recipe over at Mommie Cooks! - I lessened the sugar to 1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup, added a pinch of cloves, and used 1% milk instead of whole milk. Next time I think I could even sub 1/2 and 1/2 or light cream for the heavy cream, and I don't think the texture would suffer. This recipe is creamy and rich, but not too overwhelming.
Fun fact: Egg nog = crème anglaise. (More or less. Did I just blow your mind?)
