Make a Vanilla Mocha Eggnog

Credit: Christina Symons

Serves four
4 cups (1 litre) eggnog
1 vanilla bean
1 cup (250 mL) fresh brewed strong coffee or espresso
Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur (optional)

Place eggnog in a heavy weight medium saucepan. Slice vanilla bean lengthwise and carefully remove seeds from the bean cavity. Add seeds and bean pod to eggnog. Heat gently over medium-low heat until eggnog is hot and simmering. Remove vanilla pod. Divide hot eggnog among four large mugs. Add 1/4 cup hot coffee into each mug. If you’re feeling festive, add a splash of Bailey’s Irish Cream.
