This dessert cocktail-inspired take on eggnog highlights traditional spiked eggnog’s flavor while adding hints of ginger and not being thick. Choose whichever brand or variation of eggnog works for your crowd. You can make these ahead of time as well, and then rim the glasses and store them in the freezer or fridge. Stir together eggnog, vodka, and ginger liqueur in a pitcher and store until it’s time to serve. Then, stir again before serving.
