Salted Caramel Maker’s 46 Eggnog

by James Stevenson

I created this cocktail for Christmas to keep up with all the seasonal cocktails that were coming out in full force but find you can enjoy it all year round. One of my holiday favorites is eggnog made with Maker’s Mark.

The best eggnog moments are warming up near the fire and sipping on this boozy treat. Each year I try to make a new version of the classic Maker’s Mark recipe. In 2015 I made a salted caramel version that is sweet, salty, and everything comfortable in a glass. Next time you are looking to put a spin on the traditional eggnog cocktail amp up your game and get cozy with this recipe.
