The holiday season is filled with treats. From cookies and pies to chocolates and candy canes, it seems everywhere you look, there’s something sweet to be had. But I try to resist all of those temptations (save a cheat now and then). That’s because I like to save my holiday indulgences for Oatmeal Cookies. No, not the kind you eat, but the kind you drink!
The Oatmeal Cookie is the perfect holiday cocktail. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy with a nice little kick. I like that the drink is much lighter than Eggnog and not quite as in your face as a Hot Toddy or as sugary sweet as Hot Buttered Rum. I love to sip on my Oatmeal Cookie after dinner, enjoy one while wrapping (or unwrapping!) presents, or serve them as a pretty option at a holiday party.
But perhaps the very best part about the Oatmeal Cookie cocktail? It is the easiest holiday drink to make. Seriously. Scroll below for the complete recipe and instructions. Don’t blink or you might miss them.
RECIPE: OATMEAL COOKIE COCKTAIL
1 part Goldschlager
1 part Baileys Irish Cream
1 part Butterscotch Schnapps
Mix one shot Goldschlager, one shot Baileys Irish Cream and one shot Butterscotch Schnapps in a cocktail shaker over ice. Give it a good shake. Pour into glasses.
If you want to fancy up your Cookie a bit, you can double the recipe (as I did above), add a jumbo square ice cube to each glass (these trays make it easy), garnish with cinnamon sticks (I rolled mine in sanding sugar) and sprinkle a little cinnamon over the top.
Regardless of how you pour them, I guarantee you’re going to love these Oatmeal Cookies. Surprise your friends at your annual cookie swap party. I have a feeling you’ll still win first prize!
