These Sugar Cookie Martinis Will Be Your Go-To Holiday Cocktail

Christmas cookies are great, but after a baking marathon, you might be ready for a cocktail instead. Thankfully, sugar cookie martinis are here. These drinks give you the taste of a classic holiday treat (plus the bonus of alcohol) —  no baking required.

This recipe for sugar cookie martinis from Crazy For Crust details how to mix a festive cocktail with just three ingredients. It almost sounds too easy — and that’s because it is! All this delicious beverage requires is some vanilla vodka, amaretto and sugar cookie or vanilla-flavored coffee creamer.

Much like decorating cookies, half the fun is in the toppings. You can go with a classic sugar rim, as the blogger behind Crazy For Crust chose to, or you could have some fun with sprinkles, tiny sugar cookies and more.

Betty Crocker has a version of this festive martini that involves sprinkles. Just dip the rim of a glass in water and then redip in some sprinkles for an extra bit of fun:

Meanwhile, Delish has a version that calls for adorning the rim of your martini glasses with miniature sugar cookies. Though not required, you may want to try this step if you happen to be baking some seasonal cookies already. While you’re at it, you can make mini versions to top your cocktail and make your happy hour even happier.

Perhaps you’re not craving sugar cookies as much this Christmas. In that case, this spiked gingerbread eggnog recipe could provide the perfect dessert-themed beverage to satisfy your sweet tooth.

And if you’ve somehow had your fill of cookies for the holidays (is that even possible?), you can also shake up some festive martinis that aren’t necessarily inspired by cookies.

For instance, the snowflake martini calls for vanilla-flavored vodka, peppermint schnapps, white chocolate liqueur and cream to create a drink that’s not overly sweet or overly pepperminty, but still has the flavor to help you ring in the holiday season.
