During the holidays there are so many things to celebrate. Families coming together, friends really appreciating one another, and a general sense of happiness in the air. As it turns out there are several birthdays scattered into this season for my family. No matter what you are celebrating I think that a fun spin on the classic eggnog drink is an excellent way to celebrate. If you have a sweet tooth like I do then you will love this Almond Candy Eggnog Cocktail recipe.
Really you could use any candy that you like, but I personally like these little almond and toffee candies and I especially love them during the holidays. I have always thought of them as the perfect candy for adults because the flavor is complex and it isn’t overly sweet. They are perfect. And paired with the creamy eggnog? AMAZING.
First you start out with the prettiest set of stemware you own. Because why not? You are celebrating, right? I LOVE the gorgeous Auden balloon shaped glasses from the Libbey Perfect Signature collection. They are so chic. I don’t know what it is about the oversized glasses, but they just make me happy. There is also a certain “scandalous” show on TV where the star happens to drink from oversized stemware on a regular basis, so this type of class is definitely on-trend right now.
I got off the subject a bit, didn’t I? Okay, okay… Here is the recipe!
- 8 oz store bought eggnog.
- 1 oz whipped cream flavored vodka
- 1 oz almond liquer
- 1 almond toffee candy, crushed
- Combine eggnog, vodka, almond liquer, and ice into a cocktail shaker and shake until combined.
- Pour into wine glass.
- Top with almond toffee candy pieces.
I am obsessed with this Almond Candy Eggnog Cocktail and I think that the balloon shaped wine glass really sets it off. You can actually get the Libbey Perfect Signature Stemware Collection at your Bed Bath and Beyond, so find a store near you!
