I Can't Believe It's Not Eggnog

 
 

RECIPE

Look, I have nothing against eggnog, in fact, I like it. But c’mon, it can’t be the only player in the creamy holiday cocktail game. This lil guys is incredibly fast to put together and basically tastes like having a Christmas party on a tropical island. It’s thick and rich, spicy and sweet, chilled to perfection and covered in sprinkles because WHY NOT. I hope you love it!

[MAKES 1 COCKTAIL]

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce spiced rum (I like Zaya 12)

  • 1.5 ounces amaretto

  • 3/4 cup coconut milk (I like soy delicious because it’s insanely thick)

  • 1/8th teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

  • 1/8th teaspoon freshly grated cinnamon stick

  • nonpareils or other lightweight sprinkles for on top

Directions:

  1. Combine the rum, amaretto, coconut milk and spices into a shaker

  2. Give it a good shake

  3. Add a generous amount of ice and shake again until the shaker is real cold

  4. Strain into a glass and top with sprinkles

  5. Cheers
