There are many twists on the classic eggnog, and here is another one, which is very interesting and adds just a few more layers of flavor.
As the name suggests, the Texas Farm Nog does have a southern and fresh from the farm feel to it. It uses an aged tequila and a nutty sherry (Amontillado is a good option) with farm eggs and raw milk. It is a rich eggnog and once you get all of the spices in there, it is quite tasty. It may even win over those who are not fans of the holiday classic!
This recipe is best when it rests for two days, so keep that in mind and plan ahead.
- Combine all ingredients in a blender starting with eggs and ending with heavy cream.
- Refrigerate for two days.
- Garnish w/grated nutmeg and star anise.
