Gingerbread Cookie Martini

Well it’s Christmas Eve and I’m actually doing the blog before noon! I know! As far as cookies go I think Gingerbread People cookies are always associated with Christmas. So what better cocktail than a gingerbread martini! Once again this recipe uses Goldschlager so if you still have some left from the other martini recipes then you are good to go! This recipe calls for Van Gogh Espresso vodka but if you by chance have some Patron Coffee liqueur I am sure you can use that as well. So mix and be merry! Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas weekend! Remember the reason for the season is not about the presents or the food or the drinks…but for being with family and friends and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas. If it were up to me I’d leave my tree up 24/7/365!

Merry Christmas everyone!

INGREDIENTS:

3 ounces Van Gogh Espresso or Double Espresso Vodka (or any other brand)

1 ounce Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps

3 ounces Irish Cream (Baileys)

DIRECTIONS:

Pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Let it stand for a few seconds. Then shake vigorously for about 5 seconds and pour into chilled martini glasses!  Garnish with a gingersnap or gingerbread cookie if you wish!

Oatmeal Cookie Crush

Oatmeal, yuck!  Ewww… Gross…. But an oatmeal cookie! Yum! Ask any of my friends and family how much I detest oatmeal, hot oatmeal cereal that is. I don’t care how you dress it up, give it as many flavors as you want, throw in berries, sugar it up…I’m still not eating it! Ever! As a kid I remember being forced to eat it for breakfast. Mom was big on making us eat ‘hot cereal’ for breakfast. I wasn’t a fan. I warned her that if she made me eat the oatmeal on this one morning that it would not be a pretty sight. That I would get sick. She didn’t believe me, as mother’s usually know when the kid is bluffing. I don’t bluff. I ate it and got sick! See! Told her!  Never had to eat oatmeal again. 🙂

Now if you give me an oatmeal cookie I’m all over it! Love them! Throw some raisins in too if you want (though this is the only way I will eat raisins as well, in cookies). And if you make it into a cocktail well you know I will drink it for sure! This is a really tasty and yummy cocktail. A couple of the ingredients were used in the Chocolate Chip Martini I posted a few weeks ago so you won’t waste the booze! It does however call for an ingredient that you probably won’t use much of, Goldschläger Cinnamon Schnapps. So buy the smallest bottle you can find unless you plan to use it again. You only use ½ ounce for two drinks so it won’t be used quickly.

Garnish your drinks or serve them with your favorite oatmeal cookies! Who says you can’t have a cocktail and cookies! I also found this recipe in an old Rachael Ray magazine several years ago.

INGREDIENTS:

3 ounces butterscotch schnapps

2 ounces Baileys Irish Cream

1 ounce coconut flavored rum

½ ounce Goldschläger Cinnamon Schnapps

Oatmeal cookies, crushed, for garnish

ice

DIRECTIONS:

1. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add the butterscotch schnapps, Baileys, rum and Goldschläger Cinnamon Schnapps. Shake well. Strain into 2 rocks glasses. Sprinkle with the crushed cookies if you wish!
