12 Days of Holiday Cocktails: Thin Mint Egg Nog

I am not an egg nog fan, but maybe this thin mint version from Lauren Conrad will convert me:


  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • ¼ cup white creme de cacao
  • ¼ cup creme de menthe liqueur (green)
  • 6 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
  • ground nutmeg, for sprinkling
  • green food coloring, for added color if desired
  • red sprinkles
  • honey or maple syrup


  1. Place bourbon, creme de cacao, cream, crème de menthe and sugar into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until frosty.
  2. Chill cocktail glasses in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Pour honey or maple syrup into a small bowl, then dip rim of each glass into bowl to coat.
  3. Pour sprinkles into bowl and dip honey or syrup-coated glass into sprinkles. Twist glass around a few times to ensure rim is fully coated.
  4. Strain cocktail mixture into glasses, sprinkle surface of each with ground nutmeg and enjoy!
