Eggnog, a seasonal delight, receives a delightful twist with the infusion of lavender and a touch of warmth from cinnamon. This Lavender Eggnog recipe is a fusion of creamy, comforting, and aromatic elements that redefine traditional holiday beverages.
- 1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
- 4 oz Heavy cream
- 3 Eggs
- 1 pinch Salt
- 1 oz Dark Brown Sugar Syrup
- 3 oz Lavender Milk Tea Powder
- 7 oz Water
- Whipped cream
- Cooked Boba
- Spices of choice (Nutmeg, cloves, cocoa powder…etc)
- Cinnamon Cream Blend: Begin by blending ground cinnamon with heavy cream, creating a tantalizing cinnamon-infused cream. Set this mixture aside, allowing the flavors to meld.
- Lavender Milk Preparation: In a saucepan, combine the Lavender Milk Tea Powder and water. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Wait until bubbles form around the sides and the milk begins to steam, infusing the water with the delicate lavender essence.
- Egg Mixture: In a mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks, whole eggs, a pinch of salt, and dark brown sugar syrup. The goal is to create a thickened, pale mixture. Using a handheld mixer, this typically takes around 5 minutes.
- Combining Ingredients: Slowly pour the hot lavender-infused milk into the egg mixture, whisking continuously to ensure a smooth combination. Transfer this amalgamation back into the saucepan and cook over low heat for approximately 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
- Incorporating Cinnamon Cream: Once cooked, pour the milk-egg amalgamation into the previously prepared cinnamon-infused cream. Mix thoroughly to create a harmonious blend of flavors. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until it completely cools down, allowing the flavors to intensify.
- Assembling the Eggnog: To serve, add cooked Boba pearls to the bottom of your glasses for a delightful surprise. Pour the Lavender Eggnog filling into each glass, filling them three-fourths full. Top off your creation with a generous dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of your preferred spices – be it cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, or even cocoa powder for a hint of chocolatey richness.
- Serve and Enjoy: With these final touches, your Lavender Eggnog is now ready to be savored and shared. The aromatic blend of lavender, cinnamon, and creamy goodness promises a unique and delightful holiday beverage.
