Italian Eggnog Martini – A Holiday Cocktail

Italian Eggnog Martini – A Holiday Cocktail

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.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz Disaronno
  • 1 oz vodka (pick your favorite brand)
  • 2 oz store bought eggnog
  • Maraschino cherry
  • Cinnamon
  • Brown sugar
  • Caramel syrup
  • Candy cane and cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)
