This is really the best “Aero-Cognac” I’ve ever tried. The recipe is from my grandmother Lily’s notebook and is her version of the English liqueur Eggnog. I love the long Sunday afternoons with a cheerful company, sweet tales and a glass of this sweet little alcoholic bliss brought with lots of ice. A small bowl with nuts and black coffee always have a place on the table.
Ingredients for 1 liter “Aero-Cognac”:
- 4 egg yolks
- 4 vanilla powders
- 250 g caster sugar
- ½ liter of milk
- ¼ liter of vodka
Let all products be at room temperature.
Beat the egg yolks, vanilla and caster sugar with a mixer. Fortunately, I still have neighbors who raise hens and take fresh organic eggs from them. If there’s no way to get organic eggs, get the bests available in the nearby grocery store.
Add the milk. Finally, add the vodka to a thin stream, stirring constantly.
Leave for 2 weeks to stay in the refrigerator.
For the most impatient, as is the case at home, you can pour a glass as soon as you have prepared it. The taste is really incredible.
