I don’t really need reason to celebrate the holidays but it you are looking for one then the next fews counting our way to Christmas are going to be a real treat! When a friend first introduced me to the Christmas Cookie Martini and described it as a wintery cocktail, I really wasn’t all that sure about it. I mean a Christmas Cookie Martini just sounds, well different. And in this case different is oh so good!
This Christmas Cookie Martini is such a simple, festive drink to make for a holiday party or for a relaxing evening sitting by the glow of the Christmas tree lights watching a movie on the Hallmark Channel! It is just a good cocktail y’all! And is a good alternative to the traditional holiday favorite Simple Eggnog and can also keep with the wintery white theme long after Christmas is over!
Let’s get mixing and raise a glass to an awesome holiday season! Speaking of glasses, I cannot express enough how investing in good stemware will pay you back ten fold! I was skeptical until I found these beauties and started using them!
Here are a few items you will need:
- Martini glass
- Cocktail Shaker – I love this copper set!
- 2 ounces Sugar Cookie Cream
- 2 ounces Amaretto
- 2 ounces Vodka
- 2 ounces Creme de cacao
- Red and Green sprinkles
- Wooden popsicle stick
First let’s dress up your martini glass with festive red and green sprinkles. Pour sprinkles onto a shallow plate and coat the edge of your martini glass with a small amount of honey. I used a wooden popsicle stick to keep the honey where I wanted it – on the glass and not my floor! Next dip the rim in the sprinkles to coat the edge of the glass.
Mix all drink ingredients together in your ice filled shaker and shake! Carefully pour strained drink into your glass! There you have it! A classy, festive holiday cocktail that will have your friends asking for the recipe! ! Enjoy your Christmas Cookie Martini but please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
