St. Nick’s Chocolate Eggnog Martini

INGREDIENTS

3 Large Eggs
2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
2 Cups Whole Milk, Divided
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/4 Cup Chocolate Syrup
3/4 Cup Vanilla Vodka, Chilled
1 Tbsp Freshly Grated Nutmeg (for garnish)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium heavy bottom saucepan, beat eggs and sugar until blended. Stir in 1 cup milk.
  2. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until mixture just coats the back of a spoon, about 15-20 minutes, or until temperature reaches 160°F, but do not allow to boil.
  3. Remove from heat, then stir in remaining milk and vanilla. Strain into a bowl, then refrigerate until completely chilled.
  4. Place chocolate syrup in a shallow plate. Dip rim of 6 martini glasses into chocolate syrup to coat rims. Refrigerate to chill.
  5. In a pitcher, stir together vodka, chocolate liqueur and eggnog.
  6. Serve in chilled martini glasses and top with grated nutmeg. Refrigerate leftovers up to 3 days.
