An eggnog cocktail is traditional for Christmastime festivities, and while there are many incarnations, this particular recipe is the crème de la crème.
Camus Cognac V.S. Elegance is produced in France using grapes grown in the Cognac region, creating a spirit that is as classically smooth as they come. The King’s Ginger Liqueur, originally formulated in 1903 for King Edward VII, adds a warm spice to the cocktail, and the eggnog gives it a creamy, familiar foundation.
1 1/2 oz. Camus Cognac V.S. Elegance
1 oz. The King’s Ginger Liqueur
3 oz. eggnog mix
Orange peel zest and a sprinkle of nutmeg for garnish
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a footed glass and sprinkle with nutmeg and orange peel zest.
