Thermomix Egg Liquor (Eier Liquor)

This recipe is standard on the German Chip for the TM5 and super easy to do.  It tastes really great even though the name might put you off. (unless your European and you already know about it.) It is made with a german double corn alcohol.  It is alcohol distilled from corn. Corn is the base for most whiskeys so you can use any whisky of your choice.  It can be clear or brown in colour which usually means it has spent time in an oak barrel that has been charred by flame to give the alcohol colour.

When I was a little girl my dad was especially fond of this beverage and he used to sip it on occasion.  We would also pour a little over vanilla ice-cream to make a fancy dessert. I like it either way.  My coworker who lived in Sweden for 8 years likes to have it with ice cubes.  It is quite a thick liquid so the ice makes it thinner. This recipe makes the perfect amount. One small bottle to be given as a gift and one small bottle for your own consumption. The recipe says 3X 300ml bottles. I am translating it from the TM5 German recipe chip.

200g sugar
250 Whipping cream 35%
250g whiskey (corn alcohol)
8 egg yolks
1tsp vanilla sugar, (1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla) if using a vanilla bean you will have black spots in your egg cream.

1. Place sugar, cream, whiskey, egg yolks, vanilla sugar into bowl.
Mix 8min/70C/speed 4
2. Pour into bottles and refrigerate. Leave some space so that you can shake the bottle to mix it up just before pouring!
3. Enjoy!!!!!  Prost! Cheers!

One Bottle!

Two Bottle!
