I personally do not drink too much alcohol because, unfortunately, I have chronic Migraine diease. Alcohol is a trigger and can often times leave me balled up on the couch with a killer headache. However, I occasionally indulge in one or two and around the holidays I love to responsibly enjoy a cocktail with the adults in my life.
When my husband Rob and I first started dating it was November, I wanted to impress him with my mixology talents..ha! Anyway, I came up with this and every year it has become a tradition in our house at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I guess he liked it…he is still here and always asks for The Egg Nog Martini. It’s a creamy, sweet, cold drink that still warms up the tummy and has just the right amount of spice. Perfect to pour and drink as you’re cooking your Christmas Eve dinner or to serve your guests.. makes even the most dysfunctional family seem wonderful.. 🙂 Just Kidding.
