Christmas in Chicago with my family, boyfriend and dog. We will all need to keep warm, so “How is Adam Getting His Drink On?” will be “DRINK DECEMBER!” until the New Year. Here’s the shots in the arm we’ll be drinking. Join us?

“Christmas Cookie”


1/2 oz. Kahlua

1/2 oz. Bailey’s

1/2 oz. Peppermint Schnapps

Whipped Cream

Maraschino Cherry



Pour all the liquid ingredients in an iced shaker. Shake that shaker. Pour into a shot glass, and top with whipped cream, a Drunk Cherry and the sprinkles. Mmmm. Now, you’re ready to order Chinese takeout.

You can find more drinks like this in the book “HOLIDAY SHOTS” by Cider Mill Press.
