You just can’t have a proper holiday season without eggnog. With that in mind, today we’re featuring a Christmas cocktail called the White Christmas. This is an eggnog drink flavored with SoCo and Godiva white chocolate liqueur, topped with just a hint of nutmeg. If Bing Crosby were still alive, you know he’d be drinking this too.
- 1 oz Southern Comfort
- ½ oz Godiva white chocolate liqueur
- 4 oz eggnog
- Pinch nutmeg
In a small rocks glass, add Southern Comfort, chilled eggnog, and Godiva white chocolate liqueur and stir. Top with a pinch of nutmeg. Serve and enjoy.
The White Christmas cocktail is a variation on the eggnog and brandy theme, this time with Southern Comfort and Godiva liqueur. It’s a satisfying holiday drink; I think the white chocolate adds another layer of richness to the drink. While I discovered different versions of this drink while doing research, this White Christmas recipe is the one I enjoy most.

White Christmas was both a best selling song and movie, both featuring crooner Bing Crosby. The Iriving Berlin song first appeared in the 1942 movie, Holiday Inn, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song. The song appeared again in the 1954 movie of the same name, starring Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen. The movie went on to be the biggest grossing movie of 1954. The song was re-released as a single, and went on to sell 8 million copies in the US, and a staggering 50 million copies worldwide, a record which still stands.
