Eggnog Martini Recipe (1)

So you all remember how I teased you all on Instagram with this picture earlier last week, right? How could you forget this gorgeous drink..that I had with my lunch?

Oh yes, it’s a prerequisite for food bloggers to have martini’s at lunch. Heck, we are bringing back the three martini lunch, who’s all for it?

Now actually, I did tuck this beauty away into the fridge until supper time since I have to pick up the kids every afternoon from school. However just think, if I home-schooled I totally COULD have a martini for lunch!

This little gem is a Funfetti Eggnog Martini (and is delicious like my Peppermint Eggnog Martini). I love playing around with eggnog this time of year as eggnog is literally one of my favorite drinks ever. Plain, with rum, in baking, oh, it doesn’t matter how, I just love it. I do a little dance when I see that it’s back on the shelves for Christmas!

The martini itself is quite simple, three parts eggnog to one part vodka, it’s the Funfetti that makes this drink so festive. If you are inclined, you can put red and green sprinkles on the rim instead, but I wanted some brightly colored FUN on there!

To rim a glass like shown above, you simply take some honey and smear it around the edge of the martini glass evenly.

Then, when there is a ring around the edge, you turn the glass upside down into a plate of whatever it is you are choosing to rim the glass with. The honey makes everything stick like glue, adds a lovely taste to it and because it’s so strong you can do this hours ahead of time!

Just think, you can have a row of glasses for your guests all ready to go before they even get to your party!

I adore time-saving tricks like this.

Mmmm. This is festive and dang tasty. You can play with the amounts to make it stronger or weaker, but I liked it as it was. I also went traditional and put two drops of co*cktail bitters into it as well, but you can make it without, seeing how bitters can be hard to source sometimes. What are your favorite holiday drinks? I find myself always so darn fond of spiced rum and eggnog this time of year. It’s always eggnog based drinks for me since I wait all year for it to come, just like Santa 😉

Do you have any special drinks you make at home for the holidays? Mulled wine? Peppermint schnapps?

Oh, I might just have a peppermint drink coming along soon as well! Surprise, surprise, Karlynn made something else with peppermint!

Thanks for stopping in everyone!

Eggnog Martini Recipe (2024)


What alcohol mixes well with eggnog? ›

While brandy is the most traditional alcohol to pair with eggnog, according to traditional recipes, you can also use a mixture of dark rum and Cognac. If you like your eggnog with more of a kick you can also add bourbon, but we recommend sticking to rum and Cognac to preserve the 'nog's flavors.

Alcohol used in different national and regional versions of eggnog include brandy, cognac, bourbon, whiskey, sherry, rum and grain alcohol.

Does eggnog curdle with alcohol? ›

Though rare, there is the potential that eggnog will curdle when it's mixed with alcohol. That's typically due to too much acid interacting with the dairy.

Which whiskey is best with eggnog? ›

Southern Comfort is a Bourbon flavored liqueur, not a whiskey. The only other type of that kind I've ever seen would be Sweet Lucy. Personally, I would just start drinking Bourbon like a big boy.

The recipe for making a pina colada is simply to blend together 120ml pineapple juice, 60ml coconut cream, 60ml white or light rum with ice and strain into a glass. A squeeze of lime is optional, as is a pineapple wedge or maraschino cherry to garnish.

How do you add liquor to store bought eggnog? ›

The golden ratio for this little holiday cheer is 1 to 5. Just to be clear, that's 1 part booze to 5 parts eggnog (definitely not the other way around). And once you've mixed it all up, ensure you serve it with flair. Top each glass with a dash of freshly grated nutmeg and maybe a cinnamon stick for added flavour.

The Milk Punch is a classic co*cktail that traditionally combines brandy or rum with sugar, vanilla extract and milk (of course). Its history is extensive, dating to at least the 1600s, when the recipe first appeared in print.

Is rompope the same as eggnog? ›

Even though the kingship between rompope and eggnog is indisputable, there is a slight difference between these two hearty drinks: The traditional eggnog recipe called for whole eggs, whereas rompope just called for egg yolks—hence the very distinctive hues of each drink.

What pairs well with eggnog flavor? ›

Because it's so rich, creamy and sweet, eggnog pairs nicely with foods that have divergent flavors - savory, salty, spicy, earthy. These Ham & Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms have just the right mix of flavors. They're seasoned with thyme, garlic and bay leaf, grated with fresh Parmesan and crowned with slices of our ham.

Does eggnog taste better with alcohol? ›

The amount of alcohol put in eggnog has no written rule, but it tastes best with 1 part spirit for every 5 parts eggnog. The alcohol takes away the rich and sweet taste of the eggnog, so if you're looking for a more bitter drink you can add extra alcohol.
