Why should you stop eating Christmas cookies just because it’s cocktail time? This decadent drink is part dessert, part cocktail, and all indulgence with the addition of ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and crushed cookie pieces. 


1 ounce Baileys

1 ounce Kahlúa

1 ounce peppermint schnapps

1 scoop vanilla ice cream

Chocolate sauce

Whipped cream

Cookie crumbs


Blend Baileys, Kahlúa, peppermint schnapps, and ice cream together in a blender on low.

Layer bottom of long cordial or Champagne glass with chocolate sauce.

Pour the drink on top of the syrup and garnish with whipped cream and cookie crumbs. 

Christmas Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Christmas Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
