Twelve Treats of Christmas-Egg Nog Martini

With all the holiday baking I've been doing, I decided I needed to treat myself. So, I took a break to watch some cheesy Christmas television and sip on one of these little babies. They're quick to whip up and so tasty, too. Just make sure you use full-fat egg nog; the low-fat kind is just too thin to work here.

honey, crushed graham crackers, and a cinnamon stick (optional garnishes)

1. If desired, dip the rim of a chilled martini glass in honey and then into graham cracker crumbs.

2. Pour rums, vodka, and egg nog in a shaker with ice. Shake until combined.

3. Strain into glass, sprinkle with nutmeg, and garnish with a cinnamon stick, if desired. Makes one stiff egg nog martini.
