Beer Nog

beer nogAt Rob Roy in Seattle, Anu Apte barrel-ages this Beer Nog, but it’s just as good if you skip that process. A beer lover’s egg nog, it’s a cinch to make and a definite crowd-pleaser.

4 whole eggs (pasteurized if you like)
½ cup sugar
1 ½ cups whole milk
2 dashes ground nutmeg
8 oz. porter
4 oz. Cognac
1 split vanilla bean
Tools: whisk, punch bowl
Glass: punch
Garnish: grated nutmeg

Whisk the eggs and combine with the remaining ingredients in a punch bowl. Add an ice ring and serve. Serves 4.
