A White Christmas Dream is a creamy holiday cocktail that's fantastic after a meal. It also makes a nice nightcap after a long day of hustling around doing all of that stuff that comes with the holiday season.

The cocktail is extremely simple to make and is a lot like the Godmother. The combination of vodka and amaretto is always fantastic and in this case a healthy pour of heavy cream is added to give it a lush, rich taste.

Be sure to dust your drink with a little nutmeg. It is the key element that brings in a little extra Christmas cheer.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  3. Shake vigorously.

  4. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

  5. Garnish with grated nutmeg on top.

  6. Serve and enjoy!

How Strong Is This Drink?


  • The White Christmas Dream is one of those cocktails that is the perfect candidate for your favorite go-to vodka. There's no need to go with a top-shelf vodka—instead, find that great tasting vodka that fits your budget and keep that in your bar's stock for drinks like this.
  • The amaretto is equally important for this cocktail because it has the same pour as the vodka. You may want to think about giving homemade amaretto a try because it is quite easy and fun to make.
  • The last little note that I have is that the nutmeg really should not be skipped. It can be easy to blow off or forget about the garnish, but in this case, it really does make a difference. A slight dusting of nutmeg can take this drink from "okay" to "wow"!

Recipe Variation

  • Heavy cream (or heavy whipping cream) is a very rich option for cream and it is a nice choice for making the most luscious of cocktails. However, it does come with a high fat content and if this is a concern for your diet, you may think about switching to half and half or light cream.
