Vegan eggnog flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg, chocolate, and a hint of peppermint from the candy cane garnish. This is Christmas in a glass.
This is for all of you who prefer a non-alcoholic cocktail, because sometimes you just don’t feel like imbibing.
Have you noticed how many amazing holiday martinis and other cocktails are flying around the web this week? I feel drunk from just looking at all of them! Just kidding, sort of. So as I was racking my brain, trying to come up with a drink for this week’s happy hour post, it dawned on me; why not create something for my non drinking friends? Something that isn’t club soda. That’s how I came up with this festive holiday drink, a vegan virgin chocolate eggnog martini.
This couldn’t be easier, and I’m kind of embarrassed to even call it a recipe. But we all need inspiration, and I haven’t come across a chocolate eggnog drink, so it is a recipe in the simplest of terms. And simple this is. All you need is one cup of dairy free eggnog – Silk brand makes a good one – and a teaspoon of cacoa powder. Put it in a blender and voila! Crush a candy can to garnish the rim and put a whole one in to stir, and to add a slight hint of peppermint.
You really can’t get any more holiday than this. It has all of the ingredients of a good old fashioned Christmas drink. Eggnog, chocolate, and peppermint. And the nog has cinnamon and nutmeg, so you get those flavors too. Fa, la, la, la, la!!!!
Make this for your designated driver guests, and I suppose, if you really want to (wink, wink) you could add a shot of vodka to your drink.
One of the best things about blogging is getting to eat and drink all of the fabulous stuff we create. I’ve already finished the pretty drink that you see in the forefront, and now, I’m on to the one in the background.
Enjoy your weekend!
I use raw cacao powder in place of cocoa powder because it isn’t heated like cocoa powder, therefore it has more nutrients. You can buy it at Amazon.com
