I’ve discovered a new favorite drink to curl up on the couch with… Aztec Eggnog.
I’m typically not a big eggnog fan – I like the taste, just not in large doses. This drink however incorporates some extra ingredients that makes it a real treat.
For every 2-cup mug:
1.5 c egg-nog
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cloves
1/4 cup grated Mexican chocolate
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat until simmering (don’t boil). From there add in a decent tequila to taste (1 to 3 oz, depending on the day you’ve had…).
I really like the texture – the nog-flavor, the chile flavor combined with the chocolate and the hint of tequila throughout.
