The espresso had been added to it to the classical eggnog recipe.
Also Amaretto goes good in the coffee flavored eggnog. You can make it without the espresso if you want, and to spike it add the rum. Remember though, the alcohol is optional, and the measurements are more guidelines than rules - it all depends on how snockered you want to get.
- 12 eggs
- 8 ounces cold espresso
- 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream - softened
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1 quart milk
- 1 1/2 cups superfine sugar
- 4 tablespoons Monin vanilla syrup
- 1-2 teaspoons ground nutmeg (to taste)
- pinch salt
- 1 cup amaretto or rum (optional)
Scoop softened ice cream into a large mixing bowl and put under mixer on low. As ice cream starts to get creamy, add in eggs, espresso, heavy cream, milk, vanilla syrup, nutmeg, and pinch of salt. Keep mixing until eggnog is frothy. Pour into punch bowl. Add the amaretto or rum if you choose. Sprinkle with nutmeg to top. Serves about 20.
