Egg Nog Martini

Eggnog Martini, yes please! (click through for recipe This recipe was originally published in 2015 so consider this a little reminder in case you need a cocktail today. You can also consider this a ‘Cheers!’ from all of us at ABM. Happy Holidays friends!

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is the seasonality of the treats and delights. I mean, would things like peppermint hot chocolate and egg nog be as special if you had them every day of the year?

While I have had some amazing homemade egg nog in my time, I have to admit that I’m not much of a whiskey/brandy fan, so while I can still enjoy a cup of the ol’ nog, I actually prefer it made into a martini instead!

This is also commonly known as an “Italian version” of an egg nog martini since you add amaretto to the drink as well. The sweet touch of almond adds another layer of flavor to the drink to really take it over the top!

I love how the brown sugar rim looks, and it tastes so good when you get a bit of it mixed in with the drink. This is definitely my favorite way to enjoy a bit of egg nog over the holiday season and get those special sips in while I can (a chocolate and mint Grasshopper Cocktail is also a great holiday choice) . Hope you get a bit of nog in your noggin as well! xo. Laura

  • Would this still work with Diary free Egg nogs i keep seeing at safeway? Im Hosting my very first Holiday party and a handful of friends are Lactose! Maybe add a bit more alcohol to make up for the Premade Alcoholic Egg nog? Thoughts?

  • I’ve gone through a lot of the archives and I am trying to figure out where you have all of this tile in your house. Do you have a few different tile boards you set up for photographs?

  • Yes this looks so beautiful & delicious! I need to try this out!
