Helpful Tips:

  • If desired, you can place the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and lightly shake before pouring into the glass. This makes it a little easier to mix, especially if you’re using ice. Some like to just put the Kahlua and vodka in the cocktail shaker before pouring it into the glass, and then topping with the eggnog for a pretty floating effect in the drink.
  • Some people don’t like ice because it tends to lightly water down the drink. If you would like your drink chilled, but no ice, simply have your ingredients chilled before use, or place just a couple pieces of ice in a shaker and shake the ingredients with it before straining it into a glass.
  • These are best when consumed immediately. If you want to make them in advance, do not add the eggnog until you’re ready to serve.
  • You can use other coffee liqueur if need be.
  • Use quality ingredients for the best flavor outcome.

Making it For A Crowd

While this decadent cocktail is easily made individually, you can make it in a large batch.

Simply add equal parts of plain eggnog, kahlúa original and vodka into a large punch bowl or pitcher. Stir well. Add cinnamon sticks and a little nutmeg if desired.

Allow guests to fill up glasses filled with ice and top off with a cinnamon stick. Enjoy!
