The 12 Days of Christmas Mocktails Day 12!

This is it kids. We haven't run out of ideas, or drinks, but we had to stop some time!

I have been making this recipe every Christmas for as long as I can remember. Yep. That long. It is a little fiddly, but the delicious airy result is worth the effort. You can enjoy with or without the alcohol, up to you. Given the time of year and all, no one will blame you if you are sloshing it around a bit. Don't over do it though as you could curdle the creaminess of the whole nog, and then the merriment could end! We love adding Lyres American Malt to the mix as it duplicates the whiskey with none of the whiskey business!

If you are concerned about drinking raw eggs, whip the whites as directed, then the yolks immediately afterwards with the same heat. Then follow the rest of the recipe as directed.

You will love this one though. Merry Nogging!

Try adding any of the following to bring it to the next level;

Freshly grated lemon or orange rind or the equivalent of essential oils.

Star anise.

Very strong espresso.

Very strong Brew Choc.

Crushed candy canes or peppermint oil


A little dried chilli powder!
