Gift of The Magi 

Gift of The Magi

OK, I admit it. This is one of my more unusual creations but I really wanted to go with the gold, myrrh, frankincense theme. You’ll understand more if you watch the “The Gifts of the Magi Shooter” video.



  • 3/4 oz eggnog (preferably really, really creamy eggnog)
  • Dash of cognac
  • 2 drops frankincense (must be food grade)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 oz Goldschlager (with its 24k gold leaf)
  • 1/2 oz Fernet Branca (an Italian drink that contains myrrh)


  1. Shake chilled eggnog, cognac and frankincense together and pour into a double shot glass
  2. Very slowly layer the Goldschlager over the eggnog mix
  3. Layer the Fernet Branca on the top
  4. Give your gift to someone you know will appreciate it and watch them shoot it down
