This yummy, sweet, dessert drink, The Sugar Cookie Martini, makes the perfect dessert cocktail for times when baking a batch of cookies is not fast enough! Delicious to share for special occasions and easy enough to prepare on a weeknight when you have that sugar craving.

The ingredients for this recipe are common enough in cocktail recipes that it is worth having them on hand. The combined flavors of vanilla vodka, amaretto, and Irish cream are absolutely reminiscent of that favorite dessert, the sugar cookie.

We added a colorful rim of sprinkles for a fun presentation. You can also use colored, crystalized decorating sugar or even vanilla frosting to rim the glass.
