Eggnog Pudding Shots




Do I have a recipe for you!!!  Um, this is a shot of holiday spirit.  Literally.  It doesn’t get much more festive than spiked eggnog.  I’m not talking about pouring Grandpa’s old whiskey into a cup of eggnog.  Nope.  This is much more fun!

Bring one tray of these suckers to the ugly sweater party and you will be guaranteed an invite next year.  They’re creamy, spiked and seasoned.  They’ll blow the hot toddy out of the water 😉


  • 1 cup of whipped cream flavored vodka
  • 1 cup of eggnog (I used light, but you can use regular)
  • 1 packet of vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 tub of cool whip
  • whipped cream ( to garnish)
  • nutmeg (to garnish)


Set up squeezable shot glasses on a tray first.  Hmmm, you know it’s going to be a fun time when a recipe starts off like this…

In a big bowl, combine cool whip, vodka, eggnog, and pudding mix.  I used an electric hand mixer to make sure it was nice and smooth.

Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl about half way through mixing.

Fill the squeeze cups!  This part can get messy.  I use a cookie scoop (looks like a mini ice cream scoop) and it works the best leaving minimal spillage 😉

Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the pudding to set.


Garnish with a squirt of whipped cream and a dusting of nutmeg.



You can make these babies the day before if you’d like.  Garnish them right before serving.

These are the perfect treat to bring to a holiday party to spread some cheer!  Be prepared to be the hit of the party 🙂

  1. Yummy!!! My youngest will be turning 21 on Christmas Eve. Wouldn’t this be a treat to add to our double celebration 🙂 wondering where you found the little condiment cups? Party supply store maybe? Thanks for the great post! Happy holidays!

  2. Awesome – plan on making this for my Christmas party! Two questions though – What size vanilla pudding packet did you use? Do you know about how many shots this made (and the size of your shot cups)?

    Thanks!! 🙂

  3. To avoid messy spillage for the pouring stage, put the mixture from the bowl into a large ziplock baggie and snip the corner off (a decently sized snip, not just the tip). Pipe like icing into cups. No mess! 🙂
