Last of the Season

The temperature finally stabilized in the apartment. We got some things cleaned up and met up with some friends for a pint or three. Right now we're waiting to play another N7 session, but no go so far. The fireworks outside make our friends' dog scared so I'm writing a bit.

We made a cocktail for tonight, another vegnog variant.



It comes in two parts. The ingredients are as follows with the first component being infused then added to the rest and blended away.

  • 3 cups oat milk
  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 pods cardamom
  • 1 pinch saffron
  • 2 pieces clove
  • 1 piece star anise
  • 1 1/2 cups spiced rum
  • 1 cup plant based whipped cream
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

Put 1 cup of oat milk, brown sugar, cardamom pods, saffron, cloves and star anise in a saucepan and heat up for it to infuse. After it's done, let it cool and remove the solids. Then add the infused milk with the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend for a minute until it becomes frothy. Let it cool in a refrigerator for later. Drink responsibly.

Happy New Year!
