Eggnog Martini

While ‘researching’ cocktails for Christmas I came across this recipe for an Eggnog Martini. Eggnog never looked so good as in a martini glass! It’s a fun change from the typical eggnog and rum concoction placed in a mug or punch cup.

Eggnog Martini ~

2 cups store-bought eggnog
2 cups amaretto liqueur
2 cups vodka
gingersnap cookies
ground cinnamon
ground nutmeg

Combine the eggnog, amaretto and vodka in a pitcher and chill at least 30 minutes.
Crush gingersnaps in a food processor until they almost resemble a fine powder. Pour a tiny amount of amaretto into a small dish. Using your finger tip dipped in the amaretto run it around the rim of a chilled martini glass. Dip the wet rim of the glass into a dish where the crushed gingersnaps have been placed. Pour the alcohol mixture into prepared glasses and sprinkle with ground cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg.



  1. Sounds amazing but not at all low fat?? Oh wait it’s the holidays screw calories right! Pour me a glass please!

  2. We just had Christmas Champagne cocktails last night AND caviar! This one looks good, so if I want to make just a glass or two, it looks like just equal parts of everything right?
