Sugar Cookie Martini

And it's officially Christmas weekend! I have today off and have spent the day wrapping presents, making ice cream, and attempting to clean the mess that I let our apartment turn into over the past couple weeks. Vacation day? Was most definitely needed by me. Of course, short holiday vacations generally aren't totally relaxing since there's so much to get done and so many people to see.

But I'm totally planning on staying in my pajamas and getting tons of reading done over the next couple days. That's what Christmas means to me. Oh, and eating and drinking a ton, too. Perhaps a sugar cookie martini? It's super simple, requires very few ingredients, and will totally satisfy your holiday sweet tooth. Forget cookies have a cocktail instead! That's what Cocktail Friday is all about. And during the holiday season, a Christmas cookie cocktail is just what the doctor, er Santa, ordered.


Sugar Cookie Martini

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.

Grandma's Sugar Cookie Martini

Sugar cookies are the most popular cookie around these parts (in my life). That is the one cookie that I am known for and it is HIGHLY requested every year. "What can I bring to Christmas?" "Your star cookies. ". Well, last year I was so busy with commitments that I did not make any for Christmas. You would have thought I had brought coal for everyone when they realized there were no cookies. I am pretty sure that if that happens again this year I will be kicked out.


As popular as my cookies are with friends and relatives, I can tell you I can't manage to get an accurate count of the cookies in a batch, as soon as I pull out the beaters the cookie dough starts disappearing. Like magic (CHAD).

Chad created this FAB-U-LOUS cocktail to emulate all the things we love about my sugar cookies. The cake and vanilla vodkas combine to create a fabulous cookie flavor. The amaretto is the perfect addition to bring the almond flavor that we love so much in the cookies AND the icing!

Kick 'em off and pour yourself one. I know you will love it.

Enjoy your parties and remember. A simple party equals a fun party! Festive cocktails and quick and easy finger foods may be the best way to go!

SPICED SUGAR COOKIE MARTINI RECIPE

This cocktail is as easy as it gets! Which makes it perfect for holiday cocktail recipes and holiday parties. You take vanilla vodka, amaretto, irish cream, and Sir Winston’s Spiced Simple Syrup to a shaker full of ice. Then shake vigorously for 30 counts. Strain into two chilled martini shakers and enjoy!

The simple syrup in this cocktail is what elevates it. Sir Winston’s Spiced Simple Syrup is one of my favorite products I’ve come by this year, if not my number one favorite. It’s versatile against most spirits and it works fantastic in baking too. I’ll be adding it to my sweet potato casserole this week! Another reason I wanted to highlight this brand is because their local to Houston, TX. During the holidays I try to add as many local goods to my gift giving as possible. With the year Houston has had, I encourage you to do the same. Can you say perfect for stocking stuffers or white elephant gifts?


Recipe notes:

Be sure to cream the butter, shortening and sugar together for five minutes or until light and fluffy.

When the mixture is fluffy enough, your spatula should glide through it easily.

How to Customize Sugar Cookies:

-Replace the tsp of vanilla extract with 1 tsp of one of the following:

-Roll the cookie dough in colored sanding sugar instead of white sanding sugar

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Will Sugar Cookies Last?

In my house, about 48 hours. Your time may vary.

No, seriously, you can safely keep these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for three to five days.

Much longer than that and I would store them in the freezer.

How Should I Store Sugar Cookies?

Store sugar cookies in an airtight container, separated by layers of wax paper.

If you don’t have any wax paper, use parchment paper or plastic wrap.

Do you have a fancy cookie jar you want to keep the cookies in? Seal the cookies in a resealable plastic bag first. Many cookie jars, especially the fancier ones, are not airtight.

What’s the difference between a sugar cookie and a shortbread cookie?

The difference between a sugar cookie and a shortbread cookie is that sugar cookies have more ingredients, including a leavening agent, like baking powder or baking soda.

Sugar cookies have more ingredients usually than shortbread cookies.

In addition to leavening, sugar cookies will have eggs and salt.

Shortbread cookies are a minimalist’s cookie, generally calling for sugar, flour, butter, vanilla or another flavoring.

What are the Five Types of Leavening Agents?

According to Quizlet, there are five types of leavening agents. They include:

  • air (as in steam, for getting a rise when you’re making popovers)
  • egg whites (think of meringues)
  • yeast (bread rising)
  • baking soda (cookies or baked goods)
  • baking powder (cookies or baked goods)

What can I use as a substitute for baking soda?

Did you know baking soda is the main ingredient in baking powder?

So if you’re making a recipe and you’re out of baking soda, you can use three times the amount of baking powder to substitute the baking soda.

Easy Sugar Cookie Bars

I have made these sugar cookie bars over a dozen times! They are so easy to whip up a batch and have a delicious sugar cookie in a bar! A soft and chewy sugar cookie with delicious frosting on top. And it makes enough to feed a crowd! You are going to love these and they will become a major hit wherever you take them!

A sugar cookie bar is everything a good sugar cookie is: soft, chewy, and sweet but not too sweet! Traditional sugar cookies take a little more time. But these sugar cookie bars are easy and bake in under 20 minutes. If you love sugar cookies these Lofthouse cookies have the sweetest touch that everyone loves! Anyway a sugar cookie is made is my favorite!


French 75 Ingredients & Tips

Simple Syrup

Whether you’re using honey or sugar, you’ll need to make simple syrup on the stove, which will take less than 5 minutes (if you try using straight honey in a cold cocktail, it will seize up). You can make the simple syrup up to several days before your party (store it in the refrigerator, covered) or just let it cool for a few minutes before you shake up your drinks.

As far as the gin is concerned, you can use standard dry gin, such as Beefeater. I used Hendrick’s instead, which has notes of cucumber and rose. If you’re going to the store for French 75 supplies, I’d personally reach for Hendrick’s (I’m not wild about the more juniper-y gins).

French 75 Variations

If you’re looking for more creative spins on a standard French 75, don’t miss my Clementine French 75 and Earl Grey French 75. You’ll also appreciate the Elderflower Champagne Cocktail in my cookbook (page 127).

Please let me know how your French 75 cocktails turn out in the comments! I hope they’re perfectly delightful.

Want to change it up? For a similar lemony gin flavor profile, try the Bee’s Knees cocktail or Tom Collins. If you’re looking to branch out a bit further, don’t miss my fizzy classic mimosas or Moscow mules. Cheers!
