Oh, this is just amazing. And a seriously easy way to make holiday guests extremely happy they came over to your house. Eggnog martinis! You need good vodka, amaretto, eggnog and a shaker with some ice. That's it!The shaker is brand new, so this was the inaugural martini--it was a "happy end of your first semester of law school" present from Phil. Very sweet.Per drink, pour in 1 ounce vodka...Then one ounce amaretto...And eggnog. You can do equal parts or just to taste, depending on how much you love eggnog. I think I used a little more because I like it and you only get it once a year. And then shake. Shake! Shake like you have never shooken before. Shake it like you make money shaking things. Shake it like you can do the Single Ladies dance. Shake it so it drives your dogs crazy.But let them sniff it afterwards so they know what all the fun was about. Dogs like to know things. And it's the holiday season after all.Pour into chilled glasses. These are actually highball glasses from when Brian and Erin got married (by the way, a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top is very nice).Maybe I'll get some proper martini glasses to go with my shaker once I've finished my first year of law school? Halfway there!
