Christmas Martini 2017: Almond Nog Vodka Martinis (Vegan)

Christmas Martini 2017: Almond Nog Vodka Martinis (Vegan)

Before this Christmas I think I had tried egg nog once in my life, and I remember hating it. But despite that experience I decided to try almond nog this year and I’m so glad I did. I’d had a couple glasses of it while cooking Christmas dinner when I realized I could make it so much better. So I looked up a couple recipes on Pinterest to check if egg nog martinis were even a thing, and then just decided to wing it with things we had on hand. And thus, my favourite new Christmas cocktail was born.

Almond Nogg Vodka Martinis (vegan)

Prep Time3 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 ounce vanilla vodka
  • 1/4 ounce vermouth
  • 1 splash pure vanilla extract or artificial
  • 3/4 cup so fresh almond nogg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp black coffee
  • 1 handful ice cubes

Instructions

  • Combine vanilla vodka, vermouth and pure vanilla extract in a one ounce shot glass. Pour into martini shaker. 
  • Add almond nogg, cinnamon, nutmeg and black coffee. 
  • Add a handful of ice cubes to the shaker, cover, and shake. 
  • Pour through the filter (without the ice) and serve in a martini glass. 

Notes

This recipe could also easily be done with regular egg nog and you could also substitute the black coffee for espresso. The end result does not have a strong alcohol flavour, so if you want a stronger drink you could add more of the vodka and vermouth. 

Cheers!

With love,

Sam
