Vanilla Christmas Dream
3 shots out of 5
Last week of school for the kids, holy excitement Batman!! What's even better? Friday is a minimum day! Wowzers! We just got Madagascar 3 from Netflix, so my husband and the kids are watching the "extras" while I blog.
I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5. I had found a cocktail online that used regular vodka, and I made the decision to substitute it with vanilla vodka and amend the name a bit and change the garnish. This cocktail is pretty good. The fact that 1/3 of the ingredients is cream makes me nervous....I just know my tummy will be doing flips and cartwheels here in a bit. If you enjoy the taste of amaretto, I think you will like this cocktail because the amaretto is the one ingredient that I can taste the most of.
Here is the recipe for a Vanilla Christmas Dream:
- 1 1/2 oz vanilla vodka
- 1 1/2 oz amaretto
- 1 1/2 oz cream
- chocolate shavings for garnish
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above except for the chocolate shavings. Shake and strain your cocktail into a martini glass and garnish with chocolate shavings.

Here's to 4 more days of school for my kids and then some serious family time together!!
