We are rounding off the holidays and what better way to do so than to get together with a fellow blogger and do what we do best, entertain and host…each other! Alex, from Alex G. Style stopped by this past weekend for an adults milk and cookies par-tay! Our, “milk” was a choice of a Bailey’s Vanilla Milkshake or a Sugar Cookies and Cream Martini. The cocktails paired alongside both gingerbread and sugar cookies were outright delicious! So much so that between both of us, let’s just say there wasn’t much left. Oh and if that wasn’t enough, I also made a white chocolate dip, you know to top it all off!
So, before we head into this weekend and celebrate with our family and friends I figured I’d share both recipes for a little adult, holiday inspiration! Let the festivities begin!
Bailey’s Vanilla Milkshake (1 serving)
1. 3 oz. of Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur
2. A scoop of vanilla ice cream
In a blender, mix ingredients until combined. Pour mixture into a glass and garnish with these oh, so cute gingerbread snowflake toppers. Pair alongside gingerbread cookies and a white chocolate dip (melt Nestle’s Toll House white chocolate chips in microwave for about 2 minutes). Serve and Enjoy!
Sugar Cookies and Cream Cocktail (1 serving)
1. 1 oz. of Bailey’s Irish Cream Liqueur
2. 2 oz. of Heavy Cream
3. 1 oz. of Crème de Cacao
4. 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
5. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
6. Corn Syrup
Begin by pouring Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur, heavy cream, crème de cacao, vanilla extract, and light brown sugar into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake until combined.
Next, crush a few sugar cookies onto a small plate and on another plate pour some corn syrup. Grab a martini glass and in a rotation motion, dip the rim into the corn syrup and then into the crushed cookies. This will create a perfect festive garnish! Repeat steps as necessary, pour cocktail into martini glass, pair alongside some sugar cookies and voilà, you’ve got yourself a perfect holiday combo!
Hope you give these two recipes a try and host your very own Adults Milk and Cookies Party! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Holidays!
Until next time.
