I am going to introduce you to my new favorite holiday cocktail—the sugar cookie martini. It is a Christmas martini for those with a sweet tooth and a deep appreciation for Christmas cookies!

Start rimming the glass with vanilla sugar and sprinkles. Shake all the ingredients well until you get a smooth and delicious martini without any chunks. Now your drink is ready to serve with cookies of your choice.

A splash of caramel syrup or hazelnut liqueur can transform your sugar cookie martini into something special. You can also use edible gold sparkle dust mixed with a bit of sugar for an ultra-luxe look.

And if you want to spice it up, garnish your martini with a sugared cookie – it’s the perfect combination of sweet and sour!

I love this Christmas martini because it not only tastes incredible but also, its supremely adorable and festive. This cocktail will be the talk of your holiday party if you follow the recipe below.

What Ingredients Will You Need To Make Sugar Cookie Martini?

  • Vanilla Vodka – Vanilla vodka is a must as it will add a touch of sweetness, making your sugar cookie martini taste like a sugar cookie.
  • Irish Cream – The iconic Irish cream is an alcoholic drink made from Irish whiskey, cream, and cocoa. It will add a sweet and milky taste combined with notes of vanilla, chocolate, and the fruitiness of Irish whiskey to the martini.
  • Whole Milk – Pour whole milk into a shaker for a creamy and nutty flavor.
  • Amaretto – This liqueur will add a sweet and nutty flavor. It is made from either apricot pits or almonds, or both. 
  • Powdered Sugar – Add sugar to the cocktail to jazz up your martini.
  • Ice – I have used crushed ice when making a keto-friendly pink drink so that the cocktail blends and cools rapidly, giving it a smooth texture in seconds.
  • Vanilla Frosting And Sprinkles – On a plate pour some sprinkles with vanilla frosting to be sprayed over the rim of the glass.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What kind of alcohol should I use?

For this recipe, it’s best to use either vodka or white rum. Both of these provide that classic martini taste without overpowering the other flavors.

Is the sugar cookie topping essential?

No, it’s not necessary for the actual drink-making process. But if you’re aiming for that delicious sugar cookie flavor, then adding it on top of your glass is worth it. Plus, it makes your drink look all the more festive!

Do I need to use a shaker when making a sugar cookie martini?

No, but if you want that signature shaken-not-stirred look, you can use a shaker to mix the ingredients before serving.

I don’t have vanilla vodka. Can I use regular vodka instead?

Yes, you can make this martini with any vodka. But the key ingredient in this vodka, vanilla, will make this cocktail taste precisely like a sugar cookie. If you use regular vodka, your cocktail might taste less like a sugar cookie than you’d like. That said, try it and see what you think.

Conclusion 

You can make a sugar cookie martini at home with just a few ingredients and a little time. All you need is some vanilla vodka, white crème de cacao, and half-and-half.

Rim your glass with crushed sugar cookies, and you’re good to go. Cheers!
