Sugar Cookie Martini

A festive Christmas cocktail that is a must try this holiday season is a butterscotch schnapps sugar cookie martini. Wow, that’s a mouthful and then some! We can simplify what we call this delicious drink to a Sugar Cookie Martini. Much better, right? But seriously, if you are looking for fun holiday drinks, this sugar cookie martini fits the bill. The sweet taste of butterscotch hits the spot alongside the vanilla vodka and Irish cream.

Even though sugar cookies are synonymous with Christmas, you can make this yummy martini throughout the year. And the best part of making this cookie recipe is that there is NO BAKING involved! I love mimicking desserts in drink form. Not only is it a conversation starter (desserts in martini form – who doesn’t love to talk about what’s in those?), but creating these delicious recipes are my creative outlet. And can we please talk about garnishing the rims? That’s the BEST part! My creative juices really get flowing, when I think about the different variations that can be used to dress up a martini glass.

Festive Christmas Cocktail

There are 3 main reasons this festive Christmas cocktail is a hit. First, it tastes delicious. There really isn’t much to elaborate on that! Secondly, this sugar cookie martini looks festive. And everyone loves a festive cocktail, especially at the holidays. And third, a Christmas cookie martini is a true conversation piece. Everyone will be asking what your drink is. And then they will NEED to know what makes up a sugar cookie martini! I mean, if you are looking to get attention at a party, this is the drink to have in your hand : ) And if you want to be super host/hostess, this is the drink to serve to your guests. I can’t say it enough, mixing up drinks is super easy and quick! No preheating ovens, mixing up batters, or estimating baking time. You measure, shake, and pour – then D-R-I-N-K!!! Well, technically, you should sip on a martini, but it certainly is difficult to sip on something so yummy!

Ingredients

This sugar cookie martini consists of a few key ingredients that can be considered bar staples. Vanilla vodka, irish cream, and butterscotch schnapps. Okay, maybe vanilla vodka and butterscotch schnapps aren’t exactly staples in your home bar, but after you try this tasty drink, you will want to keep them stocked at all times.

  • 2 oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 2 oz Butterscotch Schnapps
  • 0.5 oz Irish Cream Bailey’s is a favorite
  • 1 tbsp Marshmallow Fluff glass garnish
  • 1-2 tbsp Pop Tarts crushed glass garnish

Instructions

This sugar cookie martini consists of 2 steps; garnishing the martini glass and mixing up the martini itself. You could skip the garnishing step and just mix the martini ingredients and the sugar cookie martini will still taste great. However, you will really be doing a disservice if you skip the garnishing step. It’s so fun! And, realistically, you know you want a few mini bites of delicious frosted pop tarts. So do yourself a favor and spend the extra 2 minutes on garnishing the glass.

Garnishing The Glass

  • Spread marshmallow fluff around the top of the martini glass and cover the entire rim, approx 1/4″ from the top
  • Place crushed pop tarts on a small plate.
  • Dip the garnished rim of marshmallow fluff into the crushed pop tarts, turning the glass to cover all around. Set aside in the freezer as you mix up the martini.

Making The Martini

  • Fill a cocktail shaker 1/2 way with ice.
  • Measure and pour all the ingredients in the cocktail shaker.
  • Mix vigorously.
  • Pour into garnished martini glass.
