Chocolate Eggnog Martini

Here is a perfect martini recipe to share with friends or family around this time of year! If you love eggnog, this one's for you! Forget the brandy! Try this:

Note: adjust the amount of eggnog to suit your personal taste

3 shots eggnog (homemade or store bought - either is fine)
4 shots Creme de Cacao (chocolate liqueur)
4 shots vanilla vodka (Smirnoff or any vodka of your choice)

For a larger glass, double the above recipe. Add all ingredients to a shaker with lots of ice. Cap. Shake vigorously until ice cold. Pour into a frosted martini glass. Garnish with nutmeg and cinnamon. Sip. Enjoy!

Variations:

Chocolate Espresso Eggnog Martini
For a coffee twist, use Three Olives (Triple Distilled) Espresso Vodka instead of the vanilla vodka. Contains caffeine!

Chocolate Mint Eggnog Martini
For a Christmas delight, use creme de menthe and creme de cacao together (with vanilla vodka) for a surprising combination. The trick is to use much less mint liqueur than the other ingredients so it doesn't overpower the others:

4 shots creme de cacao
4 shots vanilla vodka
3-4 shots eggnog

1 shot creme de menthe

Happy Yule, Christmas, Hanukkah, Noël, Sinterklaas, etc!

  4. Normally, doctors suggest drugs and medications
    to people suffering from diabetes. When you are suffering from type 1 diabetes, doctors
    will give you insulin injections. These treatments focus
    on making sure the pancreas produces insulin. Although, these cures
    are helpful for some time, after a period of time, they themselves become issue because people are forced to
    keep taking these treatments and injection or else diabetes will kill them.
    There has to be a different method to treat diabetes. Let us go back
    to the fact that main factor for the diabetes problem is the shortage of
    insulin formation by the body. Thus in place of forcing the pancreas to produce more insulin, we should first find out
    why in the first place did the insulin production halted.
    After that we shall try to cure that problem that had been controling insulin production and hence restart the insulin production to normal.
    By this method we could cure diabetes faster and there would be no longer
    cures and injections to think about. Such type of cure for diabetes is normally known as natural
    diabetes treatment since this functioning to restore the natural working of the
    insulin production in the body. Thomas Edison was a sufferer of diabetes and
    in those times when such injection and pills
    were not there, he made use of this remedy to get
    rid of diabetes. You should also try it out, I am mentioning
    a link to natural diabetes treatment over here.
