We’re exactly a week away from the big day, so it’s time to get a signature cocktail in order. My very Christmasy twist on this classic drink is sure to put a little blush on Santa’s cheeks. Who fancies a Eggnog Brandy Alexander? There’s no time to waste, let’s get to the mixing…

Eggnog Brandy Alexander

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 ounces of brandy
  • 1/2 ounce of crème de menthe
  • Eggnog (I recommend Promised Land)
  • Garnish: Fresh cranberries and sage

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pour the brandy and crème de menthe in a cocktail or coup glass. Mix with a bar spoon.
  2. Top off with a good amount of eggnog and mix again with a bar spoon.
  3. Garnish with fresh cranberries and sage. Merry Christmas and enjoy!

Top off with a good amount of eggnog and mix again with a bar spoon. I personally recommend Promised Land’s Holiday Eggnog. I have no affiliation with the brand, the eggnog is just absolutely delicious!

Garnish with fresh cranberries and sage. I suggest cutting a little slit into the cranberries so they’ll sit snuggling along the glass rim. Makes for delightfully festive presentation, don’t you think?

If you’re not a fan of eggnog, then I suggest replacing it with milk for a twist on a brandy white Russian. And with all that said, this is officially the last holiday recipe of the season, my friends. I am a bit sad to see this chapter end, but I do have some fun things in store for the New Year. Although I made this post Christmas themed, I do want to say that whether your celebrating a holiday or not this month, I send love and good will out to every single one of you. I wish you a happy and safe December!
