Yields 6 Servings

A great themed cocktail for your holiday celebration.


  • 3 large Dakota Layers eggs
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 cups whole milk, divided
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1 Tbsp freshly grated nutmeg (for garnish)


  1. In a medium heavy bottom saucepan, beat eggs and sugar until blended. Stir in 1 cup milk.
  2. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until mixture just coats the back of a spoon, about 15-20 minutes, or until temperature reaches 160°F, but do not allow to boil.
  3. Remove from heat, then stir in remaining milk and vanilla. Strain into a bowl, then refrigerate until completely chilled.
  4. Place chocolate syrup in a shallow plate. Dip rim of 6 martini glasses into chocolate syrup to coat rims. Refrigerate to chill.
  5. In a pitcher, stir together vodka, chocolate liqueur and eggnog.
  6. Serve in chilled martini glasses and top with grated nutmeg. Refrigerate leftovers up to 3 days.


To make 1 serving, combine about 2 ounces eggnog, 1-ounce vodka and 1-ounce chocolate liqueur in a martini shaker over ice. Pour into a chilled martini glass.
