Just like that, the holiday season is here. But before the chaos begins, take a moment to relax, ideally in front of a fire on a crisp night. Even better, shake up some holiday cheer in the form of this eggnog martini from The Lazy Moose.
The lodge-like lounge on West Magnolia Avenue is crafting an array of seasonal cocktails, and they’ve shared a recipe here for one to make a home.
With eggnog, spiced rum, vanilla vodka and amaretto, the lavish libation is as decadent as it is cozy.
Whip up a batch and be the star at any dinner party, or save it for sipping solo while waiting for Santa Claus’ arrival.
