Share recipe


  • 6 eggs, separated
  • ½ tsp orange blossom water
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 100ml cognac (we used Martell VSOP Cognac), or 25ml alternative (such as Seedlip Grove 42 Non-Alcoholic Spirit)
  • 100ml bourbon (we used Maker's Mark Bourbon Whisky), or 50ml alternative (such as Seedlip Spice 94 Non-Alcoholic Spirit)
  • 50ml elderflower liqueur (we used St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur), or 25ml alternative (such as Aecorn Aromatic Red Non-Alcoholic Aperitif)
  • 500ml whole milk
  • 1 vanilla pod, split with a knife
  • 1 pinch chilli flakes (we used Zest & Zing Urfa Chilli Flakes)
  • ¼ whole nutmeg, grated, to garnish


Step 1

In a bowl, use a balloon whisk or electric hand mixer to whisk the egg whites with the orange blossom water until you have stiff peaks

Step 2

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until pale, then whisk in the cognac, bourbon and elderflower liqueur (or non-alcoholic spirits) to combine. Gently fold in the whipped egg whites. Set aside.

Step 3

Pre-warm your heatproof glasses by filling with hot water for a few mins, then emptying. Meanwhile, heat the milk, vanilla pod, a pinch of salt and the chilli flakes in a small pan over a medium heat until small bubbles start to form. Don’t let it boil, as it will lose flavour; strain into a jug.

Step 4

Add 75ml of the whipped egg mixture to each glass; top with the hot spiced milk and stir. Garnish with nutmeg and the used vanilla pod. Store unused whipped egg in the fridge for 2 days; whip before using.
