The holidays are now in full swing with Christmas music playing 24/7 on that local radio station, decorations in all the stores and adorning most of our neighbors’ houses, and TV shows, new and classic, playing every evening.
One of my favorites, White Christmas (don’t judge), will show for the first time this year on Saturday on AMC. To go along with my visual and aural indulgence I plan to indulge in an appropriately named tipple. The White Christmas cocktail, made with egg nog, Southern Comfort, white creme de cacao (or white chocolate liqueur, take your pick), seems to me to be the perfect indulgence while watching TV, wrapping presents, sitting by the fire, or sitting snugly in the house watching the snow fall.
1 oz. Southern Comfort
0.5 oz. White Creme de Cacao
4 oz. Egg Nog (use your favorite)
Chocolate shavings or edible gold flakes
Combine Southern Comfort, creme de cacao and egg nog in a small snifter and stir gently to combine. Garnish with chocolate shavings or edible gold flakes.
