Celebrate the holidays with this creamy, decadently rich Eggnog Martini. Just 3 ingredients & a few pinches of spice will create the perfect cocktail for the Christmas season.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! And that calls for a Christmas cocktail that will help ring in the holiday spirit. I love holiday-inspired cocktails like my White Christmas Margaritas and Cranberry Mimosas but this creamy Eggnog Martini just might become my new go-to favorite.
This Christmas martini is super simple to make and extra creamy and delicious. It has just the right amount of eggnog to liquor and all my favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, that I expect in my eggnog. I typically just measure out my ingredients with a jigger, or shot glass, as it makes it super simple to throw together.
This Eggnog Martini is a Classic
Three simple ingredients and a little shake or stir, garnished with a cinnamon stick and a little holiday glitter sugar, and you’ve got the perfect drink for Christmas Eve. It’s a tradition in our family to have eggnog with a touch of rum on Christmas Eve but I think this just might be the start of a new tradition. It’s that yummy!
Indulge in this eggnog martini while getting cozy in front of the fireplace. This martini has the rich, creamy taste of eggnog, with the distinct flavors of vanilla and hazelnut and a nice kick of cinnamon. Stay warm and have a very merry Christmas. Cheers!
