This cocktail is as synonymous with the holidays as holly and mistletoe. This recipe makes enough for four. It contains 4 Cups whole milk, one-half cup cane sugar, 6 Egg yolks, 1 Cup half and half and 1 tablespoon. Vanilla paste (optional) 1 Cup Dark rum (two if PubClub is making it), and hole grated nutmeg to sprinkle on top of it.
To make it, place the milk in a two-quart saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisking frequently, warm the milk until steaming. Do not boil. Meanwhile, whisk the sugar and egg yolks in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Once the milk begins to steam, reduce the heat to low. Take 1 cup of warm milk from the pan. Whisking constantly, drizzle it into the mixing bowl to temper the yolk mixture.
Pour the tempered yolk mixture into the pan with the remaining milk and continue whisking. Cook gently until thickened. Remove from the heat. Incorporate the vanilla paste and rum. Garnish generously with grated nutmeg and serve warm or chilled.
