Blogmas Day 10: "The Big Chill" Christmas Cocktail Recipe

While reading, listen to Baby, It's Cold Outside by Dean Martin.

Nothing dresses up a get-together or holiday party like a signature cocktail. Last year, Reed and I made these festive cocktails for the Christmas gatherings we hosted throughout the season. As December approached, I mentioned to my Dad, the real creative genius behind these concoctions, that we needed to whip up something new for this year! I told him I wanted a cocktail that tasted like grown-up eggnog. Enter: The Big Chill. The Big Chill is this year's Christmas cocktail creation and is equal parts creamy, sweet, and just the right amount of spice. 

Trust me, friend: this cocktail is DELICIOUS.

Bless the host of your next Christmas party with the makings of this yummy treat, or make a batch for an intimate holiday dinner.
