Tasty Tuesday- Eggnog Martini

I realize you either love or hate eggnog. I happen to love the stuff. Growing up my dad and I were the only ones in our family of four that drank it. More for us! Now that I'm all grown up (when did that happen?), I can throw dinner parties and decide what to serve as a refreshment. I found this recipe and am going to try it out next week when two friends and their familes come over for a Christmas dinner party. It sounds delicious. Maybe I'll give it a trial run this weekend.


2 1/2 oz Eggnog (I always buy light/reduced fat)

1 oz Vanilla Vodka

3/4 oz Amaretto

Nutmeg or ground cinnamon for dusting

1- Combine eggnog, vodka and amaretto in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously.

2- Strain into chilled martini glass and dust with grated nutmeg or cinnamon.

What do you think? Sound good?
