Merry Christmas!!! What a wild Christmas season. If you’re looking to unwind, but not quite ready to wrap up the Christmas season, this drink might be just what you need. It tastes just like a delicious sugar cookie! Next year you might find yourself leaving one of these out for Santa instead of the usual cookies and milk fair, and I bet that will instantly put you on the nice list!
I love making Martinis. For me, having alcohol is as much about the process of making the drink and the presentation of the drink as it is having the drink. I feel like Martinis are the glam girls of the drink world. They have to look good and taste better! This one had that Christmas time WOW factor but was also pretty easy to make. I’m so happy to pass this recipe on to you, but if you’d like to check out the original recipe please head to Delish.
- 1/2 cup Whole Milk
- 1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream
- 2 oz. Vanilla Vodka
- 2 oz Amaretto
- Cocktail Shaker
- 1/2 Cup Vanilla Frosting (for the rim of the Martini glass)
- 1/4 Cup Sprinkles (Holiday Colors! This is also for the rim of the Martini glass)
1.) Frost the rim of your glass. I did this by adding the frosting to a small plate and dipping the rim of the glass in it, however, you can also carefully put it on the glass with a small offset spatula. Next pour some of your holiday sprinkles onto a plate and dip your glass in them. The sprinkles should attach to the frosting.
2.) In a cocktail shaker, combine the milk, Baileys Irish Cream, Vanilla Vodka, and Amaretto. Add ice and shake until cold. Pour into your decorated glasses and enjoy!
