For the cosiest of time and the loveliest of drinks, go for this one. I could call it a martini but we would be lying. It takes heat proof glasses….
You will need (if serving 6)
- 4 cups eggnog,
- 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder,
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup grated semi-sweet chocolate
- 8 oz. cinnamon vodka
Garnish: cinnamon sticks and more grated chocolate.
In a large saucepan, combine eggnog, cocoa and cinnamon and whisk together until combined. heat until it simmers only (NOT BOIL). Add the chocolate and whisk together until melted. Remove from heat and add the cinnamon vodka. Pour into heat-proof glasses or mugs that are rimmed with grated chocolate. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
What gingerbread house? what Christmas turkey…you get the picture. Drink responsibly and really enjoy the moment and the season. Anyone for jammies and popcorn?
