Cinnamon Cookie Martini

I don’t know about you, but when something is labeled “Cinnamon Spice,” I’m pretty much all over it.  I’m not going to lie, sometimes our extended family holiday functions warrant sneaking a little something extra into my coffee.

So when I saw this Kahlúa Cinnamon Spice sitting on the shelf at my liquor store, I pretty much had to have it.  Um, Merry Christmas to me!

{Side note: Christmas is just over a month away.  Let that sink in for a minute, then have a mild panic attack along with me, while I wonder how in the world 2013 passed by so quickly.}

Right now, our temperatures here are still in the 60’s by mid-afternoon, so while imbibing a shot of this Kahlúa in my after-dinner coffee would taste fantastic, a cool, creamy cinnamon cookie martini goes down just as nicely.  Plus, it looks fancy, and every now and then, I like to appear sophisticated, even though it’s likely I’m drinking this in my spaghetti sauce covered sweatshirt.

I love chocolate, and it’s the perfect pairing with this Kahlúa Cinnamon Spice. With a hint of chocolate, the creamy factor from the chocolate milk, and the notes of cinnamon and spice from the Kahúla, these martinis go down easily.

Bottoms up!
