Caramilk Eggnog

Caramilk Eggnog

While traditional eggnog is a blend of milk, cream, sugar, and eggs, Caramilk Eggnog goes a step further. The addition of Cadbury Caramilk chocolate enriches the flavor profile, making it a delightful variation that’s bound to impress your guests. The spiced rum adds a subtle kick, infusing the drink with an extra layer of warmth and complexity. Get the Recipe

Eggnog Martini

The Eggnog Martini

Unlike traditional eggnog, which usually calls for dark spirits like rum or bourbon, our Eggnog Martini goes a step further by incorporating vanilla-flavored vodka and amaretto. The vanilla vodka adds a smooth essence, while the amaretto lends a nutty sweetness. The best part? You can take a shortcut with store-bought eggnog, making this cocktail as convenient as it is delicious. See the Recipe
