This Sugar Cookie Martini is perfect for holiday entertaining with Baileys, amaretto and vanilla vodka. A pinch of confectioner’s sugar makes it sweet like a cookie with a dreamy, creamy texture. A rim dipped in icing and sprinkles tops off this festive cocktail.
It wouldn’t be the holiday season for me without a new dessert martini for the archives. I’ll be spending my weekend making sugar cookies with the kids whilst having a couple of these. Sometimes, I think more of the sprinkles and flour end up on the floor than on the cookies!
Vanilla vodka is a must have for those wanting to make a good dessert martini. It adds the perfect extra bit of sweetness and is a staple in countless recipes. Add a Gingerbread or Snowflake Martini to your holiday cocktail menu to use up any “leftovers”.
These martinis are extra festive with a red and green sprinkle rim job. I purchased ready-made vanilla cake icing and gave the glasses a generous dip and turn before really coating them. You may have to even use a butter knife to really spread on that icing on any bare spots. There is no such thing as too many sprinkles! You can customize your sprinkle colors for any celebration or holiday. I love the idea of doing rainbow sprinkles for birthdays or pink for wedding showers.
These Sugar Cookie Martinis are sure to be a holiday favorite at your next party. Be sure to add Christmas cocktails for a crowd to your menu. A Christmas Sangria with cranberry and orange or a Cranberry Orange Punch with sherbet are a couple of my favorites. A festive, Candy Cane Crescent Roll Breakfast Pastry is an easy dessert that is sure to impress.
