Trust me when I tell you this drink will warm more than your heart.
- 1 oz Disaronno (other Amarettos will work)
- 1 oz vodka (pick your favorite brand, Vanilla Smirnoff is a great choice)
- 2 oz store bought eggnog
- Maraschino cherry
- Brown sugar
- Caramel syrup
- Candy cane and cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)
Directions: (Pictures of directions can be found on Cooking with Sugar's site.)
Coat the inside of a small plate with caramel syrup, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Dip the rim of a martini glass in the mixture and spin back and forth and all around until the whole rim is coated. Place the glass in the freezer.
In a shaker with ice, add the eggnog, vodka and Disaronno. Shake for a minute. Remove glass from freezer. Place one maraschino cherry in the bottom of the glass.
Pour mix from shaker into glass and sprinkle with cinnamon. Garnish with a candy cane and a cinnamon stick.
