Sometimes the holidays get away on you a little bit. Your redneck cousin shows up in his motorhome, the sewage line backs up into your house and you discover a rabid squirrel living in your Christmas tree. On those occasions you might want to mix yourself a nice strong Clark Griswold.
The good folks at Bombay Sapphire have updated the modern eggnog recipe by adding gin, Amaretto and chocolatey Creme de Cacao, and renaming it after Christmas Vacation’s star character. You will drink it quickly, forget all about your first-world problems and be ready to embrace “the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.”
- 1 oz Bombay Sapphire gin
- 1/2 oz Bacardi Oakheart spiced rum
- 1/3 0z Amaretto Disaronno
- 1/3 oz Creme de Cacao
- 2 oz eggnog
- Shaved dark chocolate garnish
Combine all ingredients with ice. Stir briefly and fine strain into a rocks glass. Top glass with ice, garnish with shaved dark chocolate and serve.
