Christmas Cookie

Pin It

Don’t let the name Christmas Cookie dissuade you from enjoying this drink any time of the year, no matter what holidays you do or don’t celebrate. But be forewarned: it really packs a wallop with three ounces of alcohol. It tastes a little like a peppermint latte, only much better.

Christmas Cookie Drink: Peppermint Schnapps, Kahlua, Bailey's

This makes a delicious dessert drink. Feel free to try other brands of coffee liqueur and Irish cream – Tia Maria is great with this cocktail, and Carolan’s Irish Cream has (in my humble opinion) more flavor than Bailey’s. There are a lot of good liqueurs out there to choose from.


  • 1 ounce peppermint schnapps
  • 1 ounce Kahlua
  • 1 ounce Bailey’s

Combine the ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake thoroughly, then strain the ingredients into a chilled martini glass.

  1. Delicious!! I posted a “like” to facebook. I’m actually enjoying a drink right now, it feels a bit strong at first but then you have that smooth peppermint after taste. I love it. So simple to make.

  2. Try using crushed candy canes for the rim!

  3. I find the peppermint schnapps a bit too much. The first time we made these, cut the schnapps to 1/2 ounce. Then we discovered Peppermint Mocha Kahlua! Works great and if you want more peppermint flavour, add a few drops of schnapps. Cheers!
