Holiday Eggnog With Peppermint Punch

In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

Christmas and New Year’s wouldn’t be the same without some traditional and even non traditional eggnog. Sweeten things up a bit with this delish peppermint eggnog punch!


Peppermint Eggnog Punch


1 quart peppermint ice cream

1 quart eggnog

4 (12 fluid ounce) cans or bottles ginger ale, chilled

1 cup rum

24 small peppermint candy canes for garnish


Set aside 2 or 3 round scoops of ice cream in the freezer for garnish. Stir remaining ice cream until softened. Gradually stir in eggnog and rum. Transfer to a punch bowl, and stir in ginger ale. Hang candy canes around the edge of the punchbowl. Float reserved ice cream scoops on top, and serve immediately.
