Every good holiday host should have a special eggnog cocktail recipe to share with friends and family. This is what I will be serving this year. The No. 9 Eggnog is a rich, thick and creamy eggnog softened by the light sweet vanilla in the Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum.
Sweet and spice makes everything nice!
1 oz. Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum
4 oz. eggnog
Cinnamon sugar for rim
Dusting of nutmeg
Method: Combine 1 tsp. of cinnamon with 2 tsps. of white sugar on a small plate or a napkin. Moisten a portion of the rim on your favourite holiday glass with a lemon, then roll/dip the rim in the cinnamon sugar.
Add ice and pour in a generous portion of Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum. Pour in eggnog and give your drink a stir to mix the liquids. Finish with a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg on top.
Tips: Mixing with eggnog is always a hit during the holidays. I like a light spiced rum that doesn’t add additional sweetness to the already richly sweet eggnog.
The Cruzan 9 Spiced rum has a lighter sweet vanilla taste compared to other spiced rums. It is spiced with 9 different spices — allspice, vanilla, pepper, ginger, mace, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and juniper berry.
If you like, replace the nutmeg with some of your favourite spices found in the Cruzan 9 to enhance those taste notes.
