Decorated with a sprinkles rimmed glass makes this Martini the ideal Christmas party cocktail! This Christmas Cookie Martini recipe has Baileys Irish Cream, vanilla Vodka, Amaretto, Vanilla Coffee Creamer and Half & Half to make a Christmas cocktail that will surely be loved by your holiday party guests.

Dry Ice for Cocktails

Did you know ice plays an important role in how a Christmas drink with alcohol is created? Ice in cocktails helps to keep your drink cool. Cooling down a cocktail also enhances particular flavour profiles of the drink.

Ice also allows for the perfect dilution of alcohol to occur for the cocktail. Fresh and dry ice is the best to use to make this Martini recipe for Christmas.

What can you use instead of dairy in a Christmas Cookie Martini?

Dairy-based Coffee creamers may make your morning cup of joe taste smother, but some people are not able to consume it. Almond milk, soy milk, or an almond-based creamer can easily replace its dairy-based counterpart in a good holiday cocktail.
Irish cream is one of the hero flavours in this Christmas Cookie Martini recipe. Dairy is a main component of an Irish cream liqueur, which may not be the right cup of tea for those who sip on it. What can be used instead of this popular liqueur? An almond-based cream liqueur or a “hard” oat nog made from oat milk can do the trick in this Christmas Cookie Martini!

How long do cocktails last in the fridge?

This Christmas Cocktail with Baileys can be pre-made two to three days in advance without the ice. You must store it in an airtight pitcher or container in the refrigerator until ready to be served to your guests. Make sure you only add the ice when you are ready to shake it before you serve it.

How to make a Martini at home

If you would prefer the make the Martini cocktail, there are two general ways to whip up a martini. For those who love a clear look with a smoother flavour to their drink, a classic – or stirred – martini is the way to go. If you want your drink to be more diluted with the liquid being cloudier, then a shaken martini is the way to go! I have a martini recipe on the site that shared how to mix both types of these drinks for you to enjoy!
