recipe: small-batch eggnog

Quick and easy small-batch eggnog

I tried 2 variation on the same recipe from http://maplepepper.com/recipes/drink/ (cut recipe in 6ths)

(a) 1 egg, 1/2c heavy cream, 1/3c milk, 1/6c maple syrup
(b) 1 egg, 1/2c heavy cream, 1/3c milk, 1/2t vanilla extract, 3 T dk brown sugar.

Blend until frothy.
Hardest step is letting it sit in fridge for several hrs :)

result: yum!  the maple syrup version is tasty but the maple flavor is overpowering.  the vanilla version was by far everyone's favorite, though a little less vanilla would probably be even better

whipped cream and a light dusting of nutmeg and cinnamon make it perfect :)

Just made up a full batch: 3 c cream, 2 c 2% milk, 1 c brown sugar, 1 T vanilla extract, 6 eggs

Doesn't taste right until added a little nutmeg, maybe 1/4-1/2t ground? Helps bring out the egg flavor but only use a touch
