HAPPY HOLIDAYS! It’s time for a little cocktail to bring you a little (or a lot) of holiday spirit. As you all know, I’m a HUGE fan of all things eggnog. Especially if that eggnog is aged eggnog. Or used in this eggnog martini.

Yeah, I’m a huge fan.

Plus I feel Christmas isn’t Christmas without eggnog. I grew up looking forward to the “nog” each and every year because it’s a strict seasonal drink. You can’t very well be drinking eggnog in July.

I don’t think you could even find eggnog in July if you tried. Well, you could make it but I just can’t imagine drinking a big glass of nog and then hopping in the pool.

Now, the thing I love the most about this cocktail is not just that it contains eggnog BUT that it combines eggnog with vanilla vodka and amaretto.

Hello, delicious.

Plus, I sprinkled on a little nutmeg because it’s the perfect topping for any serving of eggnog.

And you’ll love how fast and easy this cocktail is to put together. Just put a few ingredients into a shaker, give it a shake and enjoy!

Now, you’ll notice that this post is sponsored by the American Dairy Association North East who I spent time with back in October. I had a great weekend away in upstate New York learning all about dairy farms and spending time with a few blogger friends.

New York State Dairy Tour

Beside just squealing over baby cows I learned a lot about modern day dairy farming and the farmers who live their lives proving families with fresh dairy products.

I mean, if you read my blog you know I’m all about dairy – cheese, milk, butter, eggnog. I WANT IT ALL!

New York State Dairy Tour

We not only visited a few farms but we saw cheese being made, tasted local bourbon, ate a lot of cheese, competed in a cooking competition (I won!) and learned about all things dairy.

Farmers work long, hard hours and often times devote their whole life to dairy farming. They love their cows because healthy cows produce quality milk. There are no days off in the dairy farming world. Christmas, Memorial Day, Fourth of July – they work every. single. day.

I think the thing I love most about visiting farms is seeing the passion farmers have for their job. You don’t go into dairy farming to be a millionaire. You do it because you love it.

I like knowing that my food comes from farmers who love their job, love their herd and love the idea of producing quality dairy products.

And obviously, without dairy, you can’t have eggnog! Which is why I thought this post was PERFECT for sharing about my dairy trip. Let’s face it – eggnog is the dairy superstar of the holiday season!
