A Sweet Holiday Dessert Cocktail Recipe

So my wife is always getting these invitations to “cookie swaps” around Christmas time. For those of you that don’t know my wife, which many of you don’t, this really isn’t her type of thing.

But a Cocktail Swap? Now that she would be into. She’d for sure be making a whole pitcher of these Gingerbread Man Drinks to bring along.

You can have a little taste, see what you like and come away with tons of different cocktail ideas. And everyone would leave happy instead of feeling horrible that they ate so many cookies, am I right?

But you still would want to have some snack at this Cocktail Swap, definitely snacks. Appetizers for the bourbon and tequila drinks, cookies or some sort of boozy dessert for the dessert-type drinks.

How To Make This Dessert Cocktail Recipe

Just get out your shaker, add Baileys, Gingersnap Vodka and Butterscotch Schanpps. Shake and pour.

Get some fancy Christmas colored sugar for doing the rim nice, it is a party you know…and you’re headed out the door.

Who isn’t going to love you when you walk into a party with a bottle of Baileys and a pitcher of The Gingerbread Man drinks for dessert? It’s like having boozy milk and cookies for dessert.

I’ll tell you in advance, you’ll always be welcome at my house – just in case you’re ever in the neighborhood!
