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.

Ingredients

Instructions

Vigorously shake all ingredients with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a dusting of fresh-grated nutmeg, and/or ground peppermint bark.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
