The holiday season is upon us! Truthfully, this is our favourite time of year; the lights, the decorations, the joyfulness. It's truly wonderful. Eggnog is the perfect beverage to celebrate with loved ones and feel the holiday spirit. Here's a wonderful new way to enjoy a modern take on the traditional eggnog.
.5 oz Brandy
.5 oz dark rum
3 oz store bought eggnog
1/8 tsp sugar
1 cinnamon stick, for garnish
Mix the brandy, rum and eggnog in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Add the nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar to a small plate. Wet the rim of a glass with rum. Roll the rim of the glass in the spices.
Strain the cocktail into the glass. Garnish with cinnamon stick.
If you don't like a strong drink, half the amount of liquor or use just brandy or rum, rather than both.
Make sure to shake the cocktail well, to chill it sufficiently. This will reduce the "heat" of the liquor.
