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!



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 scooper) 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! 🙂
