When comes to an eggnog that serves during Christmas, you either love it or hate it. The latter is especially true if you hate the idea of adding egg yolks into a drink. It may be an acquired taste for (some) people too. The taste of eggnog can be best described as sweet, rich and creamy with added spices and a dash of booze, where the latter can be either rum or brandy. You may use bourbon or whiskey too. An eggnog recipe usually consists of egg yolks, heavy cream, whole milk, sugar, alcohol and grated nutmeg/cinnamon.

So, if you are thinking of whipping up something different than the typical eggnog, why not make it a cocktail for a change? Below are the list of 8 assorted eggnog cocktails you can make at home this Christmas.

1) Chocolate Eggnog

Ingredients: Eggnog, bourbon/rum/brandy, dark chocolate (chopped) & unsweetened cocoa powder.

3) Kahlua & Eggnog

5) Eggnog Martini

Two classics in one: eggnog and martini. For the latter, instead of the usual vodka, this holiday recipe calls for vanilla-flavoured vodka. A dry vermouth is typically used as the main second ingredient for a martini. But to give this eggnog martini an added nutty and sweet flavour, a sweet almond-flavoured amaretto liqueur will be used here.

Ingredients: Eggnog, vanilla-flavoured vodka, amaretto liqueur & grated nutmeg (for garnish).

Ingredients: Eggnog, whole cloves, rum, vanilla extract, kosher salt, grated cinnamon & cinnamon stick (optional).
