If you know me you know that I really love a great cocktail. I think they are fun to experiment with and they are one thing that I can almost always create a low carb copy of that I like as well (or better!) than the original. This Christmas cookie martini recipe has just one carb and it’s SO creamy and delicious you’ll want to sip it all night long.
But you won’t. You won’t because it’s super rich and you’d be full AND you won’t because it has an enormous amount of alcohol in it and after a couple of these you’ll be seeing the Northern Lights…. even if you live in Texas.
Yep, there’s a story about that. You knew it, right?
When I was growing up in the 1960s the culture was much different than it is now. If you’ve ever watched Mad Men then you actually have a pretty good idea of what I’m talking about. There were cocktail parties and poker parties every weekend at my house – the booze flowed pretty freely and I used to sit on the stairs long after I was supposed to be in bed and watch the adults get smashed.
My parents had three other couples that lived in the neighborhood that they were close friends with. They literally got together every week at one of the houses to play poker and sip old fashioneds or martinis or whiskey sours. One night in December my dad and one of the men had sipped maybe a little more than usual and decided that they were going outside to see the Northern Lights. This was despite the fact that we did not live in the northern tier of states and the possibility of actually seeing the Northern Lights was slim.
They took their drinks outside and I followed along. I don’t totally remember what did happen but I do remember that they swore up and down they’d seen the Northern Lights. From that time on getting a little tipsy and seeing the Northern Lights were connected activities.
This Christmas cookie martini recipe is easily good enough to allow you to see the Northern Lights, Santa, and Rudolph, too. I think that next time I’ll rim the glass with red and green sprinkles because the carbs would be minimal and it would be pretty – but that’s up to you.
This could easily be made in a punch bowl, too. Just be sure to stir it well before serving.
