On a cold winter’s night, when the snow is piling up outside and fire is crackling in your fireplace, few things beat an egg nog, especially when you add a little “spike” to it. Spicing up your egg nog with rum is great, but I thought it was time for a little twist on this traditional cocktail. My secret is to use Disaronno (and a little bit of vokda). Trust me when I tell you this drink will warm more than your heart.
Coat the inside of a small plate with caramel syrup, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Dip the rim of a martini glass in the mixture and spin back and forth and all around until the whole rim is coated. Place the glass in the freezer.
- 1 oz Disaronno
- 1 oz vodka (pick your favorite brand)
- 2 oz store bought eggnog
