If you enjoy the taste of eggnog, this cocktail is a must try. Unlike many premixed alcoholic eggnogs, this one doesn’t have the overpowering taste of alcohol. For this cocktail you will need some eggnog, brandy, amaretto rum, nutmeg, and vanilla ice cream. Combine the eggnog, brandy, ice cream, and amaretto in the blender until you have a smooth consistency.  Pour into a martini glass and top with a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg. Put the sugar on the rim and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
