Peppermint Bark Eggnog

Peppermint Bark Eggnog cocktail with rum, cognac, creme de menthe, creme de cacao, heavy whipping cream, and a whole egg

The love child of egg nog and a Stinger, this single-serving nog from Tom Macy at Brooklyn’s Clover Club is the perfect drink for the holiday season. You can use just about any mint liqueur you like (like crème de menthe or peppermint schnapps), but it shouldn’t be green, lest it give the nog an unappetizing color.

Though it’s an optional garnish, it really is incredible with the suggested dusting of ground-up peppermint bark dust. If you don’t have any peppermint bark on hand, though, fresh-ground nutmeg is perfectly lovely on its own.

Instructions

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
