Christmas Cocktail Recipes*

I’m definitely in the Christmas mood now. We’ve bought the goose for Christmas dinner, there’s the remains of a yule log in the fridge waiting to be eaten (recipe will be up next week) and the house is looking beautifully festive.

However; there is one thing missing, a good old Christmassy cocktail. Well eggnog cocktails to be more precise! Because let’s face it, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without them and be honest, who doesn’t love snuggling under a blanket watching Christmas films while drinking eggnog?

Here are a few of my favourite festive eggnog cocktail recipes:

Baileys® Eggnog:

  • 35ml Baileys®
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 75ml milk
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 nutmeg/ground nutmeg
  • 1 cinnamon stick to garnish

  1. Whisk together the egg and caster sugar in a bowl until it becomes creamy and the sugar begins to dissolve.
  2. Add the Baileys® and milk.
  3. Cut open the vanilla pod, scrape out seeds with a teaspoon and add to the mixture.
  4. Grate in the nutmeg or add a dash of ground nutmeg.
  5. With a cocktail strainer (or sieve), strain the mixture into a Cognac glass. (Or any glass you may have that looks awesome.)
  6. Add the cinnamon stick, placed inside the glass at an angle. (Bloody supermarkets were ALL out, so I left this part. Plus I’m not a huge cinnamon fan in drinks)

This tastes absolutely incredible and I think it’s probably my favourite ever eggnog recipe! It’s so rich, creamy and sweet ♥

Baileys® and Raspberry Eggnog:

  • 50ml Baileys®
  • 70ml milk
  • 20ml Frangelico (available from Amazon)
  • 15ml raspberry puree (to make your own, put some raspberries and some sugar in a saucepan and heat gently. Stir until smushy. Leave to cool down before adding to the cocktail)
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 raspberries to garnish

  • Place all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker
  • Shake thoroughly to combine all the ingredients
  • Add ice to the shaker and shake again
  • Strain into a glass
  • Place 2 raspberries on top to garnish

Baileys and Frangelico Eggnog

I’m a sucker for a fruity drink and this one is delicious. The Baileys and Frangelico work so well together and it looks really pretty too 🙂

Captain Morgan® Eggnog:

  • 50ml Captain Morgan® Rum
  • 1 egg
  • 15ml single cream (I used double cream for this as I prefer double cream and we had loads in the fridge!)
  • 15ml sugar syrup (you can make your own but I cheated and used some hazelnut sugar syrup I had in the cupboard)
  • 60ml milk
  • Nutmeg

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Add Captain Morgan®, the egg, cream, sugar syrup and milk to the cocktail shaker.
  3. Shake vigorously until combined.
  4. Using a cocktail strainer (or sieve), pour the mixture through and into a tumbler or Martini glass. (Or any cool looking glasses you have at home).
  5. Grate over some nutmeg or add a dash of ground nutmeg on top.

This cocktail is great for any rum lovers out there although I used Spiced Gold instead because J prefers that one.

I’m so excited to make more Christmas cocktails now. I really wanna try the Baileys® hot chocolate, spiced cider and Christmas punch because they sound absolutely delicious 🙂

  1. These all sound yum! Although I must be one of the few that likes their eggnog hot! I’ll give these a try warmed up (although maybe not the raspberry one, that one sounds like it’d be better cold!)
