Cheers to the Holidays!

What do you get if you mix 360 Double Chocolate Vodka and Five Farms Irish Cream!? If you guessed a Holiday Cookie Martini you would be right! Something about a fun holiday cocktail puts me in the holiday spirit. I also recently learned that 360 Vodka was created to be the first eco-friendly distilled spirit. When you have finished your bottle you can actually request a prepaid envelope to send back the swing-top closure before recycling your bottle. So we are talking about an adult sweet treat that tastes delicious and is good for the environment. Sign me uppppp! These recipes are easy and just in time for the holidays. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Holiday Cookie Martini

Ingredients (makes 2)

  • 3 oz 360 Double Chocolate Vodka
  • 3 oz Five Farms Irish Cream
  • 4 oz half and half
  • 1 oz whole milk
  • pinch of powdered sugar
  • Five Farms Irish Cream Frosting (recipe below) and sprinkles for the rim
  • Ice (to chill)

With a knife line your martini glasses with the Irish Cream frosting. Twirl your glasses in a shallow dish of sprinkles. Now, combine all other ingredients in a cocktail mixer. Shake for 20 seconds and pour (straining the ice) into your prepared glasses. 

Cheers!

These sugar cookies are batter than you think. Alright, I know I’m not that punny, but a girl can dream right?! But really- this batch of cookies will bake your day. They would actually pair well with my spiked Five Farms hot cocoa recipe that you can find a couple of recipes back too!

Irish Cream Whoopie Pie

Ingredients (makes 6 whoopie pies)

  • 1 package of sugar cookie mix (the frosting is the MVP but you can also make your cookies from scratch if you prefer!)
  • 1 stick of room temperature butter 
  • 1 oz of Five Farms Irish Cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2-3 cups of powdered sugar
  • Whipped Cream
  • Holiday Sprinkles

First prepare your cookie mix per the instructions on the package. I used a cookie scoop to make them all round and symmetrical. Now to prepare the frosting. In a countertop mixer combine the butter, vanilla, irish cream and two big squirts of whipped cream. Slowly add in the powdered sugar starting with 1 cup at a time. The amount you need will depend on the consistency. I used a little over two cups in this recipe but have had to use more. If the frosting isn’t thick enough or is not setting up, add more. If it’s soo thick add more whipped cream.

Now, place the icing in a zip-lock bag and cut the corner off the end. Ice your cookies in a circular motion (on the bottom of one cookie) and then place another cookie on top! Carefully sprinkle the outside of your whoopies pies with sprinkles being careful not to press too hard and force out the frosting. Freeze for 5 minutes to help the frosting harden up. 

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
