Gingerbread Bourbon Eggnog

Not gonna lie, this Bourbon Gingerbread Eggnog, is gonna be my new dessert cocktail! Of course, you can make this with store-bought gingerbread eggnog, but please, give our simple GINGERBREAD EGGNOG a try. Whenever we can make something from scratch, and choose our own ingredients we do. This allows us to use organic eggs, pure vanilla, and the amount of sugar that we want. Compared to store-bought, we add more spice and less sugar.

We rimmed the martini glass with a combination of turbinado sugar and cinnamon. This gives this bourbon eggnog the perfect hint of spice and a little crunch!  Okay, but then that smooth and creamy taste of gingerbread, eggnog, and bourbon. I can’t even.

If you love the taste of gingerbread, and eggnog, you will love this cocktail!
