THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Eggnog Cocktail

The perfect little festive cocktail for this weekend, it combines two of my favorites, eggnog and bourbon!
The first time I came across this delight was at a holiday open house hosted by some friends of ours a few years back and it seems to have made its way on to our regular Christmas Eve repertoire. If there is one thing I look forward to after a long day of visiting and dropping off presents on Christmas Eve is coming home to curl up on the sofa and unwinding with one of these! We take the eggnog theme one step further by replacing the heavy cream with some actual eggnog which I prefer but below you will find the recipe in its original state.

Eggnog Cocktail

3 ounces bourbon
3 ounces white creme de cacao
6 tablespoons heavy cream (substitute with eggnog if you prefer)
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
ground nutmeg, for sprinkling

1.Place bourbon, creme de cacao, cream, and sugar into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until frosty. Strain mixture into glasses. Sprinkle surface of each with ground nutmeg.
