Wordfuse (Holidays recipe-for-disaster Edition)

Eggsnog
Ingredients:
~6 eggs
~4 cups whole milk
~3/4 cup heavy cream
~1/2 cup plus 2 tbps of sugar
~1/4 tsp salt & 1 tbsp vanilla
~1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
~1 cup rum

Directions:
Whisk eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla in a large bowl until well-blended. Continue whisking as you slowly pour in the milk until it is completely mixed. (Yeah, I don't know how you're supposed to do that either.) If you can believe it, continue whisking in a sauce pan (on your lowest possible heat setting). Whisk. Whisk more. Whisk ad nauseum for 25-30 minutes or until you can't stand it anymore, run to the corner store and buy eggnog. Or just drink the rum. (Okay, so I'm obviously not Nigella Lawson, aka WOW.) Take a cab to the office Christmas party, or really any holidays get-together, but NOT the family get-together (this part is pretty important). Drink too much. Mayhem ensues. Suddenly realize you are snogging with someone in the corner of the living room. Voila! Eggsnog.

What a festive cocktail recipe! Except for the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg.

Keep the rum and snogging, and I think you're good go to here.

Just looking at that recipe for eggsnog makes me want to hurl (lactose intolerant). As for snogging someone at the office party... there is that picture of me getting very cosy with a petrol bowser...

It wasnt like that at all.
Honest...

@A&G Dude! Drunk much?

@DP Exactly.
@Cheeseboy Step 2 or 2nd base?
@LoC Yes. I think lots of people do.
@Nicole Haha!
@KL Be careful with that stuff.
@Alittlesprite I'm sure your secret is safe with me and the internet because the wikileaks guy is being closely monitored. :)

:) Maybe there is hope for my fictional literary skills after all...

dbs said...

@A&G Fictional literary skills or fiction literary skills? I suspect there's hope for both.

Alittlesprite said...

Well THATS a relief! :) I was afraid I was going to have to hunt you down...

Artist and Geek said...

dbs. Nice catch. Due to your fresh perspective I no longer know what I meant.
