What if Mrs. Claus came to town this year instead of Santa Claus? And she brought eggnog and peppermint Schnapps with her? I think it would be a done deal! Watch out Santa, there’s a new holiday cheer in town.
I am an absolute eggnog fanatic when the holiday season rolls around. You can only get it once a year! I may or may not have just bought two more cartons of it… I can’t help it! It’s just so smooth, creamy and tastes like Christmas. That’s basically what this Mrs. Claus Cocktail is, Christmas in a cup. This is the perfect and easy cocktail to serve up this holiday season. You can go completely Christmas Vacation style and have your guests sip on this cocktail with a glass moose mug, or serve it up in any cocktail glass or old fashioned mug that you like!
Even though eggnog is so fantastic on it’s own, the addition of white chocolate liqueur and peppermint Schnapps take it to a whole other level! The white chocolate liqueur makes it even more velvety smooth and the peppermint Schnapps adds just the right amount of holiday cheer. Seriously, Christmas in a cup. You can serve this family-style and have your guests make their own, or have it all prepared for them. Heck, make it ahead of time and stash in the refrigerator until your guests get there! Add a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of crushed candy canes and you are all set to go.
Mrs. Claus doesn’t ask for cookies and milk, she wants her very own Mrs. Claus Cocktail. If you have some extra eggnog, let me know.
Note: this recipe is for one serving, or how you would prepare it in each glass individually. If you are making it for a crowd or want to serve it “family-style” simply just use this recipe as a base and adjust for how many you are serving.
