The Perfect Eggnog Cocktail For One

Recipe may be doubled. After that, you'll have to shake a second batch.


  • 2 oz Heavy Cream
  • 1 Egg
  • 1.5 oz Cognac or Brandy [I use either Courvoisier or Kinsip Brandy]
  • .5 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1-3 tsp Maple Syrup [I like 1 tsp, but try 2-3 if you've got a sweet tooth]
  • 2 dashes Maple Walnut or Black Walnut Bitters [feel free to substitute with whatever bitters you have on hand]
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg + a dash for garnish
  • ice for shaking


  • Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake hard for one minute.
  • Strain and pour into a festive coupe or whiskey glass.
  • Garnish with a dash of nutmeg.
  • Enjoy!
