no longer: once all the food is prepared on thanksgiving morning, before all the guests arrive, we take a shot of baileys. to say “we succeeded in not burning down the house”. or the fact that we can finally sit down. either or. for those wondering, why a shot of baileys? three reasons. 1] we like to have fun. 2] but we have taste buds. 3] and don’t want to pass out under the table.
this cocktail is in honor of my family’s thanksgiving morning baileys shot.
ingredients: baileys irish cream // peppermint schnapps // ground cinnamon.
in a cocktail shaker: one part baileys, one part peppermint schnapps, and a dash of cinnamon.
shake + pour into a martini glass.
optional: add fun colored sprinkles to garnish.
to put a little ‘pep’ into your thanksgiving morning. or for you to get into the holiday spirit.
