Easy Bourbon Eggnog takes the classic eggnog cocktail and adds the right level of spice and warmth. Top with nutmeg and cinnamon for an indulgent and festive cocktail!
Easy Bourbon Eggnog has been my answer to the Eggnog Cocktail for quite sometime. I love bourbon in anything baked (like this Pear Galette) and anything remotely creamy. I don’t like bourbon straight. Mixing it with creamy ingredients, like eggnog :), takes the edge off and that burning sensation away. It mellows out enough that it becomes an entirely new and delicious flavour. One that I just can’t get enough of!
This cocktail is apart of the #FBCConnectingOverCocktails collaboration. You might remember this Spiked Iced Tea or Pisco Sour from previous collaborations. A bunch of Canadian bloggers get together and pick a theme for everyone to have fun with. Thanks to my girls JustineCelina and Killing Thyme for always hosting this collaboration. There are a few other seasonal and holiday inspired cocktails below. For us to not so patiently count down until happy hour.
I picked this Easy Bourbon Eggnog because I’ve made a promise to myself to make the holiday season as easy as possible. More fun and less stress. Anything that can be made delicious and quickly has my name on it. I want moments and memories with my loved ones (that involve tasty food and drinks obviously) and tons of time in the kitchen without actually seeing anyone. This cocktail is present at our holiday party every year. Mostly because I can make a big batch of it and let guests pour for themselves, while still maintaining a level of festiveness, socializing, and entertaining.
How easy is this cocktail? 2 ingredients and about 4 minutes in total. It’s so simple, but will convince people that they now like bourbon too. (Just give it a chance!) I know that eggnog and spice rum are supposed to be BFFs, but really, bourbon is eggnog “person”. Yes, I just referenced a Grey’s Anatomy line in a cocktail post. So that’s my life in a nut shell.
