Peppermint Bark Eggnog | Cocktail Party

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.
