Christmas Coffee Eggnog


Note: I just tried this recipe recently and it has a very rich toffee coffee flavor mixed with the eggnog. It is definitely going to be a new tradition in our Christmas holidays! Warm drinks are so much more appealing to me during the holidays than cold ones.

Christmas Coffee Eggnog

Ingredients

2 eggs, separated
1/3 cups sugar
1/3 cup instant coffee
Dash salt 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups milk, chilled
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 cup shaved unsweetened chocolate

Directions

In a small bowl using an electric mixer, beat at high speed, beat egg whites until soft peak forms. In large bowl, beat egg yolks until lemon colored. Gradually beat in coffee, salt, vanilla, milk, and 3/4 cut water. Stir in egg-white mixture and whipped cream; mix well. Serve well chilled, with chocolate sprinkled over each serving.

Note: I do warm this drink over a double boiler, because I don't like cold drinks, but most people prefer this drink chilled.

So, the recipe says serve well chilled - how did you warm it up to make it a hot drink? Did you just pop it in the mic?

This looks really yummy but I am wondering how you got it warm again as well.
