This recipe is easy to make at home and more flavorful and fresh than the storebought version. It has a sweet, cozy flavor and smells heavenly.

Fireball Eggnog Recipe

To make Fireball Eggnog at home is so easy and only requires three ingredients. The first is Fireball, a cinnamon-infused liqueur. It is also used in this Fireball Whiskey Punch recipe. Eggnog is an obvious ingredient, you can make it from scratch or use storebought (another eggnog cocktail we love is this Eggnog Martini). The third and final ingredient is Vanilla Vodka. As far as measurements for making one drink go, think 3-2-1. 3 ounces of eggnog, 2 ounces of Fireball, and one ounce of vanilla vodka. Cinnamon sugar will be used to rim the glass for an extra sweet and festive flair.

How to Make Fireball Eggnog

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Pour all the ingredients into the shaker.
  3. Shake really well to soften the thick consistency of the eggnog and merge the flavors.
  4. Strain into a cinnamon sugar rimmed glass.
  5. Garnish and enjoy!

How to Serve

Before preparing the drink itself, prepare your glass. Roll the rim of your glass tumbler in corn syrup then in a shallow plate of cinnamon sugar. Pour mixed drink into prepared glass just before serving. Garnish with a sprinkle of nutmeg and a cinnamon stick.
