Don’t know if you’ve ever noticed but we’re not fans of the creamy cocktail round here, our bottle of Bailey’s we discovered to be long past its expiration date, so I thought long and hard about doing an egg nog concoction (Yes, I even thought about making it from scratch!) but why go to so much effort if it's something I don't really enjoy. So here's my version of egg nog or the way I think it should be served. Eamon loves the stuff by the way and delights when it’s back on the shelves in the supermarket but to me it tastes like a glass of custard and this is why I ended up making my drink a dessert instead of a true cocktail. Best enjoyed with a spoon watching your favorite Christmas movie or put it in a blender and drink it like a milkshake.
Scoop of eggnog ice cream
1oz Bailey’s Irish cream liqueur poured over it
Freshly grated nutmeg to garnish.
Other ways to top this: crushed ginger snap cookie, crushed chocolate covered Kimberly biscuit, Cadbury’s flake
P.S. I went for the mini version of the cream liqueur instead of a full bottle, large tub of the ice cream though!
