This recipe is for eggnog lovers everywhere 🙂 I absolutely love eggnog! My Mom always used to buy a gallon from the grocery store every season, because she knows how much I love it! I would pretty much drink the entire gallon myself. Needless to say, I’m quite picky when it comes to both my eggnog and my eggnog cocktails. This one turned out SO good!!
My wonderful friend Christine came over last night. When she heard that I needed help coming up with the perfect eggnog cocktail, she dutifully volunteered! Thank you Christine! 🙂
We had a great time trying different combinations of eggnog, Bailey’s, Kahlua, and Irish Cream. It took us a few tries to come up with the perfect combination, but once we found it…Oh my goodness! We had to stop ourselves from drinking way too many glasses of that yummy stuff!
Homemade Eggnog Cocktail Recipe:
This is a really fun drink to make:
- simply wet the rim of a small stemless wine glass.
- Turn the glass over on a plate sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. The sugar and cinnamon will grab onto the wet rim and start to form a crust as it hardens and dries.
- After the glass is lined with cinnamon and sugar, carefully drizzle the chocolate syrup down the sides.
- Pour in your liquor and eggnog, top with whipping cream and cinnamon and you have your super cute cocktail!

When you pick your eggnog out for this drink, try to make sure the ingredients are as clean and simple as possible. We recommend you look for all natural eggnog (they are out there). The only ingredients you should see in it are milk, sugar, vanilla, eggnog, water, and nutmeg. No preservatives or thickeners.
Happy drinking! We hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as we did!
