In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar, and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a small plate and set aside.

Wet the rims of two cocktail glasses or coupe glasses with water, then dip them into the mixture of ground cinnamon and sugar. Set the glasses aside.

Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add Canadian eggnog, vodka, coffee liqueur, molasses, and a pinch of gingerbread spice (or ginger). Seal the shaker and shake for 10-15 seconds to mix the ingredients.

Strain the mixture into the prepared cocktail or coupe glasses.

If desired, top the drink with Canadian whipped cream and a light drizzle of molasses.

Serve and enjoy!
