Quick and easy, this Bourbon Spiked Eggnog cocktail uses store-bought and ready eggnog and combines it with a good splash of bourbon and lots of freshly grated nutmeg. It’s yummy!
I’ve heard it said a million times whenever someone is really stressed out that they need a drink. As much as I absolutely love and adore Christmas, I do know that for some people, it can be the most stressful time of year. With that said, a great-tasting cocktail you might consider trying is this Bourbon Spiked Eggnog.
My daughter is almost 20 years old now, but I remember the stress of finding the perfect toy. I remember waiting for her to finally go to sleep so that something she asked for could be assembled. And, I most certainly remember trying to get through Christmas Day without a nap, because she had us awake super early!
I’m most certainly not suggesting that you consume alcohol to get you through the holidays, but moderation is the key. Personally, I think a cocktail tastes better when you have someone you enjoy spending time with, drinking a cocktail too. So, when entertaining this season, consider preparing this White Bourbon Spiked Eggnog. But, please, drink responsibly!
REMEMBER TO SPREAD CHRISTMAS CHEER!
Not everyone is fortunate enough to celebrate Christmas the way others might. So, if you know someone who might not be a parent, Christmastime can be just as stressful for them. There are many things that can cause a stressful holiday, not just super excited kids. It can be financially stressful for some people. It can be depressing or upsetting for others. And, in some cases, it can be lonely. Do your best to share some goodies or cheer with those who might be less fortunate. And, if you can, choose a local charity and make a donation. For some smaller charities, every dollar helps!

INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO PREPARE THIS RECIPE
The following is a list of the ingredients needed to prepare this recipe. For exact amounts and measurements, refer to the printable recipe card located near the bottom of this post.
- Eggnog – I always use store-bought eggnog, but I know many people prefer to make it themselves. You can use either of those.
- Bourbon – is a type of barrel-aged American whiskey made primarily from corn.
- Nutmeg – I swear, this is one of the underused spices. Eggnog without nutmeg isn’t eggnog at all. Have you tried adding nutmeg to mashed potatoes? Bomb!
HOW TO MAKE A BOURBON SPIKED EGGNOG
Add about 1/2 cup of ice to a cocktail shaker, along with the bourbon and eggnog. Place the lid onto the shaker and shake for 10-15 seconds. Strain the cocktail into a glass and top up the glass with ice. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg. Serve immediately.
