The 3 Ingredients You Need for this Ube Eggnog

  • Ube Cookie Butter – This gives it that distinct Ube flavor without relying on just a drop of essence.
  • Kasama Rum – Made in the Philippines and has a nice sweet vanilla flavor. It’s one of my favorite rums.
  • Almond Eggnog – Here you can just use store bought Eggnog. I can be the real deal or a plant based one like I used.

First Rim Your Glass!

To make this Ube Eggnog Spiked Cocktail first rim your glass with some Ube Polvoron. This part is totally optional, but it makes it super festive. You can use this recipe to make your Ube crumbs. Or you can just crush some ube polvoron on a plate. Easy!

Put a tablespoon of Ube Cookie butter on a small plate and run the edge of your cocktail glass on the cookie butter.

Now make the cocktail!

This Ube Eggnog Spiked Cocktail is a recipe for 2, but feel free to double or make a batch for 8.

Put a tablespoon of Ube Cookie Butter in a blender and add in 1 1/2 cups of Eggnog. Blend until smooth and strain into a decanter.

Strain into the prepared coup.

This cocktail is on the sweet side, so it’s great as a finisher to a meal to replace with dessert. Or great with apps that are more salty. Either way it’s good to have in the pocket for the holidays.

FAQ on Ube Eggnog

Do I need to add the Rum?

Of course not! You can totally make this kid / sober friendly buy totally omitting the rum. If making for kids change out the coup to a plastic one, but don’t skimp on the polvoron rim. It’s a must!

What other alcohol can I add?

Something coconut based is good or even a gin is good. Bourbon or whisky will go well too.

Do I need to use Polvoron?

Nope, any ube cookie will do. Just make it into a fine powder.
