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


  • 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


  • 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. 


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. 


With love,
