Christmas Cookie

Day 308

Christmas Cookie
4 shots out of 5

It's been a looong time since I've gotten my hair cut.  Tomorrow morning will be the day that I get it chopped and colored (which I haven't done since I was pregnant with my first......some 14 years ago!)  Needless to say......I'm REALLY excited!!  One and a half more days of school and the kids are officially on winter break, yeay!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  This cocktail is a good one.  You can almost taste every ingredient in a certain order when you take a sip.  First I get the Kahlua flavor, after a couple seconds the Baileys kicks in for a brief second and then it's a pepperminty surprise at the end.  Very interesting, I must say!  These three ingredients go pretty well together.  Whenever you have Baileys and Kahlua together (in my opinion) it's always a good mix.  I found tonight's cocktail at mixthatdrink.

Here is the recipe for a Christmas Cookie (no oven needed!):

  • 1 1/2 oz Baileys
  • 1 1/2 oz Kahlua
  • 1 1/2 oz peppermint schnapps
  • red & green sugar crystals (for rimming glass)
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a red & green sugar rimmed martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to enjoying Christmas Cookies two different ways!

  1. If you sub cinn. schnapps for the mint it's a gingerbread cookie and AMAYZING!!!!

    1. Oh that DOES sound amazing!!!! I'll have to see if I can find some, yum. Thank You for sharing that =)

    2. Sorry, Renee, but mine was definitely NOT amazing in a good way. I was out of mint, so I tried your version. It tasted much like medicine. :( I wonder if the type of cinnamon makes a difference? I had the Hot D@mn kind. Maybe if I'd used only half the cinnamon? It was really overpowering. I also used St Carolan's Irish Cream rather than Bailey's. That's been interchangeable for any other recipe, so I think it had to be the schnapps. Bummer. I was really hoping to find something to use this cinnamon stuff in, but I did not care for this cookie at all.
