  • 5 oz. gluten free eggnog

  2. Add ice to martini shaker and fill it halfway.
  3. Add eggnog, vodka, and Amaretto. Add lid and shake to combine.
  4. Dip each of the two martini glasses in the water and then in the brown sugar and set aside.
  5. Pour eggnog mixture into glasses, sprinkle tops with nutmeg and serve immediately.


*Though manufacturers may have made a gluten free claim due to their distilling process, if their vodka is made using gluten grains, it is not truly gluten free. Try one made of other ingredients or grains or one that is grain-free.

Corn:¬†SF Vodka ‚ÄúBaker Beach‚ÄĚ and¬†Smirnoff

Potato: Blue Ice Chopin, Luksosowa, Monopolowa,Teton Glacier, Vikingfjord

Grape:¬†Bombora, C√ģroc, DiVine, SF Vodka ‚ÄúChina Beach‚ÄĚ

Apples, Grapes and Sugar Cane: Azzure.

I'm not a big fan of potato vodka, but many people are. I look forward to trying Azzure. I bet it tastes more like rum, sweet.

**A substitute for the 3/4 ounce of Amaretto is 3/8 teaspoon almond extract.

**Per the Gluten Free Bartender app, the following brands of Amaretto are gluten free:

Amaretto Disaronno

Amaritio Amaretto Lazzaroni and Luxardo Amaretto Di Saschira.
