How Do You Serve These Cocktails Warm?

Hot eggnog is a great way to warm up in the wintertime. Don’t underestimate the soothing sensation of a warm and boozy delight in a cup! This cocktail is made even better by a generous helping of amaretto. This is a nut and cranberry infused cream that brings an aromatic and savory quality to compliment the spiced profile of the rum and eggnog.

Heating this drink up is rather simple, and doesn’t really require any substitutes. Grab yourself a small saucepan, and add in all the wet ingredients. If you’d like, you can even include a cinnamon stick for added flavor while the mixture heats up. Stir gently over medium heat for around ten minutes, and heat further as desired. Carefully pour them into your heat safe mug, and you’re all set!

When’s the Best Time to Serve Eggnog Cocktails?

As per tradition, these cocktails usually make their way onto the stage in the evening. Either before dinner as a cocktail to tide everyone over until supper is ready, or afterwards to compliment or stand alone as its own dessert in a cup! The versatility of eggnog as a mix is why I love it so much, not to mention the fact that rum goes along perfectly with the velvety texture of the drink.

  • ½ cup Spiced Rum
  • 1 cup Amaretto
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut liquid creamer
