Even if you're not a fan of egg nog, you might like this martini--it's a way to enjoy the holiday drink in a subtle way. The creaminess of the traditional holiday beverage is complemented with ginger and white chocolate flavors, and the cinnamon sugar rim and ginger snap cookie garnish makes it extra-sweet--something that made this egg nog-phobe a believer. It's available during the holiday season at R Bar and BLT Steak.
The bartender: Trudy Thomas, director of beverage at Camelback Inn
The ingredients: 1 ounce Canton Ginger Liqueur, 1/2 ounce Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur, 1/2 ounce Disaronno, 2 ounces egg nog, 1 pinch cinnamon sugar, 1 ginger snap cookie for garnish
