Holiday Entertaining Drink Recipes!

Container of purchased Eggnog
Southern Comfort
E&J Brandy
Evan Williams Bourbon
Cinnamon for garnish

Have Eggnog already poured into a glass mug and discuss how people are often unsure how to add a little kick to their eggnog for the holidays. For December's cocktail of the month, we recommend sprucing up your eggnog with either a splash of Southern Comfort, E&J Brandy or Evan Williams Bourbon. You can make whichever you prefer and then just garnish with cinnamon.

1 oz. Kahlua coffee liqueur
1 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. (Perhaps wet rim of martini glass and rim with red or green sugar sprinkles)
