Christmas being this weekend, add this to your dessert menu, but it’s for adults only! Being made of only three ingredients, all being liquor, this potent treat is just that. It’s potent. So be forewarned! But, as long as your tummy is full, you should be ok.
This rich mocha latte treat has a hint of peppermint that is just so yummy! They remind me of a drink to dip Oreo cookies in, which, I have to admit, I did. And I found it hard to stop!
Not only on this drink but with all of them, what I love most about the cocktails I serve up is HOW I serve them up. Adding a fun rim, using fun straws, or sprinkling something on top makes it more interesting and festive. I created this a couple of ways for you. The first way I did was by dipping the rim in chocolate syrup and then in crushed Oreos. The second way was to simply sprinkle crushed Oreos on top and serve with the cookie. You can also dip it in chocolate syrup and crushed candy cane. I chose to not do that because I did that on THIS cocktail you can see, and I wanted something a little different.
Chill the liqueurs before prepping them so they remain chilled for a while. Or chill the glass if you prefer.
Christmas Cookie Recipe

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in all three ingredients. Shake thoroughly until chilled, then strain the mixture into the glassware of your choice.
