Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without eggnog! It’s true. The only time eggnog comes around is during the Advent season, so drink up my friends!
If you are a purist then by all means make your own eggnog! (Here is a great recipe by Alton Brown over at Food Network. You’ll probably want to leave out the bourbon suggested in the recipe. Or not. Go big or go home!) If you don’t have the time or inclination to make your own, then a good store bought version will be fine.
For the cocktail:
1 oz amaretto
1 oz vodka
2 oz eggnog
ground cinnamon or nutmeg for garnish
Shake amaretto, vodka, and eggnog together in a cocktail shaker over ice. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
For the mocktail, simply leave out the alcohol and garnish each glass with cinnamon or nutmeg.
Snuggle up in front of a fire and enjoy!
