Smooth and Creamy Eggnog
ELR Recipe for Eggy’s Revenge
I mixed this eggnog recipe on 10/30 — the day before halloween figuring it might be done steeping by Christmas. I was right. But I also forgot to test it like I normally do with recipes in between. Fresh it was rather harsh, and had some funny off notes, but I knew they would steep out. I did try it at 3 weeks and it wasn’t quite ready as there were still some off notes I could taste, so I put it back in my test tube rack and meant to go back to it at 4 weeks. However, I’ve been busy and added a ton of other test tubes to my rack so it was hidden behind them.
It may be done for some people at 4 weeks, it could even be okay after a few days for some people who like these flavors fresh and who have less sensitive palates. However, if you mix it up and it’s a little funky give it until the 7 week point before discounting this recipe. It turns into a deliciously smooth, spicy and creamy vape.
I do get the gingerbread cookie, so it is possible you may end up tasting ice gingerbread cookies and milk, which is a great flavor itself. But, I am sensitive to the eggy notes in the custard, so I get a definite rich, vanilla eggnog flavor mingled with the spices. The oatmeal cookie is there more to lend spice, but also to add extra thickness, as the oatmeal cookie is a bit thick and bland on it’s own with mild spice notes.
I am considering adding a little more vanilla into it, so I may update this recipe in a couple months after I mix a larger batch for my second run of this recipe. I think I will add in 0.75% of FA Vanilla Bourbon, as it is more of a realistic vanilla extract flavor which is what I think could be used here. I am also thinking I may increase the custard just a bit as well, bumping it up to 3.5% in the next batch.
This 10ml bottle that I mixed however will be gone before the night is over. It is that good that I can’t put it down.
