Jellied Holiday Nog and Eggnog Martinis
It’s not a cool yule without eggnog. But eggnog and jello? Does it work? Yeah, actually it’s not bad. It’s better than it looks in these iphone pics, I swear.
I made Jellied Holiday Nog for a dinner party. The recipe involves lemon jello, jello vanilla pudding, sugar, dream whip, rum extract, vanilla and nutmeg. It turned out to have a pudding consistency. I didn’t try to keep it in a mold but let it run free. It made a nice sidecar to the delicious layer cake made by HungryKat. I think if I made it again I’d put real rum in it, and more than a dash. Even though the recipe involved no actual eggnog, it did taste noggy, due to the rum extract, vanilla, and nutmeg. Jello magic!
My favorite seasonal eggnog recipe is for an Eggnog Martini. I got this recipe out of Sauce Magazine. If you happen to have any eggnog left in your fridge from the holidays, try this out.
1.5 oz vodka
1.5 oz amaretto
3 oz eggnog
Splash of cinnamon schnapps
Sprinkle of nutmeg
Chill the first 4 ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Enjoy!
