Cookies and Cream Martini

As Christmas Eve approaches, my family is gearing up for our annual party. This means cleaning, cooking, baking, decorating, grocery shopping, decorating, etc. Lots to do!! Lucky for me, I managed to get all my wrapping done, and am feeling pretty prepared for the big day.

It definitely feels great to be home, even for a short amount of time. Visiting with friends, walking around the city, and just soaking up the Christmas energy that is filling the neighbourhood. It is pretty fantastic.

I have been on a bit of a Christmas cocktail kick, and I thought I would share another one with you. This is one of those drinks that is sweet and delicious, but since it is a cream-based drink, you really don't want to be drinking too many of these. It's like drinking a milkshake!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a wonderful weekend with Family and Friends!
