Honey Ginger with Honey

1 2/3 cups Half & Half
5 Tbs honey
2 Tbs finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 egg whites

Put honey, sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring, until honey and sugar are dissolved.
Add ginger and bring to boiling.
Boil until the mixture is reduced to syrup
Lower heat to low, add half & half slowly, stirring
Remove from heat, cool to room temperature
Whip egg whites to form stiff peaks
Gently fold egg whites into milk mixture

Mexican Hot Chocolate

2 cups Half & Half
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
6 egg yolks
2 tbs cinnamon
1/2 tsp orange extract
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp chili powder

Heat 1 cup of half & half in a medium saucepan with cocoa, orange, cardamom, and chili, stirring until cocoa is dissolved
Add the rest of the half & half and the cream, and cook just till it begins to bubble around the edges.
In a bowl, stir the egg yolks until slightly frothy and pale
Add the sugar to the eggs and mix well
Add the dairy mixture in 1/4 cup increments, mixing quickly and thoroughly to temper the egg mixture
Once half of the mixture is mixed into the eggs, add the rest and stir until the consistency is even
Return to saucepan and cook on low until the mixture reaches a temperature of 170 degrees F or 77 C
Remove from heat and refrigerate overnight
