Holiday Cocktail Recipe Series: Day 6 of 12 – The Egg’spresso Martini

Yesterday, we shared a recipe in which the classic holiday flavor of peppermint stood front and center. Well, if there’s another classic treat that springs to the minds of many during the holiday season, it’s gotta be eggnog. Throw in a jolt of espresso and the smoothness of vanilla vodka, and you’ve got a once and future holiday tradition on your hands. And in your glass.
