A flavorful and festive eggnog martini with RumChata and Frangelico. Decorate the martini glass with nutmeg and cinnamon for a holiday treat!

If you’re anything like us, then chances are you have some eggnog on-hand.

Now, we’ve already shared eggnog pie, eggnog fudge, and eggnog French toast.

But, did you know that you can make an amazing eggnog martini with RumChata and Frangelico?

Nothing says. “welcome to the party,” like a martini!

Until recently, I had never heard of such a thing. Well, at least not with both RumChata and Frangelico.

All it took was one sip to know we had to share this festive recipe with you.

Kim and I hope you enjoy this drink (responsibly) as much as we do.

How to make a Frangelico eggnog martini with RumChata?

First, pour 2-ounces of non-alcoholic eggnog into a cocktail shaker. Next, pour 1-ounce of Frangelico into the shaker.

Be sure to use non-alcoholic eggnog for this recipe!

Then, pour 1-ounce of RumChata into the shaker. Seal it and gently shake the martini.

Last, pour the cocktail into a martini glass and serve cold!

That’s it, your eggnog martini is done! Kim and I hope you enjoy it and wish you all the best 🙂

Chill the ingredients beforehand to avoid using ice in the shaker.

Decorating the glass is optional, but I did provide detailed instructions below.

How to decorate the rim of the glass?

First, pour 1-tablespoon of maple syrup onto a small plate.

Next, combine ground cinnamon and brown sugar on a separate small plate.

Then, dip the rim of the martini glass into the syrup. Last, dip the rim into the cinnamon and brown sugar mixture.

The glass is done and ready for the eggnog martini.

Recipe Tips and FAQ’s:

  • This recipe makes a 4-ounce martini. So, if you’re using an 8-ounce glass, then double the recipe.
  • Rimming the glass in ground cinnamon and brown sugar is optional. With that being said, if you choose to do so, then rim the glass before starting the cocktail.
  • I don’t recommend adding ice to the cocktail shaker or martini glass. It will water down the drink. Chilling the eggnog, RumChata, and Frangelico before getting started is the best way to serve this martini.
  • Use non-alcoholic eggnog. Otherwise, there will be way too much liquor in the drink and it will ruin the flavor.

What alcohol goes with eggnog?

Bourbon (whiskey), rum, and vodka are great options for eggnog. Personally, I prefer bourbon because it adds a warmth to the drink.

Are you supposed to refrigerate RumChata?

According to the manufacturer’s website, you don’t have to refrigerate the product.

How long does RumChata last?

When stored at room temperature, RumChata will last for up to 6-months. This information was found on the manufacturer’s website.
