Every other year, my family hosts a big holiday party where we invite all our friends over. My sister and I always make Martha Stewart's eggnog. It's thick, frothy, and most importantly, boozy. Since this Christmas is an off year, I'm a little bummed we won't be enjoying the eggnog. That's why I decided to cheer myself up by making an eggnog martini.
There's not much difference between an eggnog martini and eggnog; most eggnog recipes serve a large crowd, while the martini serves just one. To save time I used store-bought eggnog. The resulting concoction wasn't as wonderful as the real thing, but it sure hits the spot. It's potent, creamy, and delicious. See the recipe I used and read more.
