How to Make Dos Nog: Egg Nog With Dos Equis Beer
In this Havas -created holiday greeting from Dos Equis' Most Interesting Man, we learn of an experience he had with a very stubborn donkey and his desire to have the recipe for the egg nog the donkey's owner made for him. It, of course, contains beer. Dos Equis beer to be precise.
Below, enjoy the holiday video along with the recipe.
30 quail eggs, separated (or 6 chicken eggs)
1/2 cup sugar, plus 2 tbsp
2 1/2 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
4 oz bourbon
1 bottle Dos Equis Ambar
Cinnamon sticks to garnish -- optional
HOW TO MAKE IT
To make Dos Nog you will need a few things: the ingredients above, an ambitious palate and a touch of interesting. Let's get started.
Begin by combining ½ cup of sugar with 30 quail egg yolks. If you don't have quail eggs, 6 chicken egg yolks will suffice. Beat in a stand mixer for several moments until the concoction doubles in volume. Mix in the milk, heavy cream, vanilla extract, nutmeg, your favorite bourbon and a bottle of Dos Equis Ambar.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites and 2 tbsp of sugar until peaks appear, resembling the waves beneath Count Beaumont-sur-Mer's majestic vessel. Fold the waves into the yolk/sugar concoction, chill, pour into glasses and garnish each with ground nutmeg, a cinnamon stick and conversation.
