Fabulous FG Friday Cocktail: Italian Eggnog Martini

Pin It When we saw this recipe on Cooking with Sugar, we *had* to try it!
Trust me when I tell you this drink will warm more than your heart.

Italian Eggnog Martini  

Ingredients:

  • 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
  • Cinnamon
  • 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.
