Happy December! This week’s Signature Cocktail is just right for the crazy countdown to Christmas — spiked eggnog! Since this recipe makes a small batch for two, it’s perfect for a cozy date night, but it can most definitely be scaled for larger parties! Enjoy!
– 2 large eggs
– just over 3 oz (by volume) superfine sugar
– ½ tsp freshly-grated nutmeg
– 2 oz brandy
– 2 oz spiced rum (I use Sailor Jerry’s, or can be house-made)
– .25 oz. Jamaican Rum (Appleton)
– 6 oz whole milk
– 4.25 oz heavy cream
– pinch of 5-spice mix
Beat eggs in blender for one minute on medium speed. Slowly add sugar and blend for one additional minute. With blender still running, add nutmeg, brandy, rum, milk and cream until combined. Chill thoroughly to allow flavors to combine and serve in small punch cups. Top with grated nutmeg and cinnamon stick and serve.
