Snickerdoodle Martini

Well Dined | Snickerdoodle Martini

I have a group of girlfriends that get together on a regular basis and take turns providing snacks and drinks.  A few of them have a mighty sweet-tooth (we call them hummingbirds); so I knew that when it was my turn to bring a cocktail, I wanted to make something sweet.  I found a quick and easy cocktail recipe that is sure to please lovers of sweets (especially cookies) - the Snickerdoodle Martini.  It also features one of my all-time favorite liquors, RumChata.

Snickerdoodle Martini
adapted from Dawn Nicole
serves 4

cinnamon sugar (I use 8 parts sugar to 1 part cinnamon, some people use 4:1)
honey
12 oz half and half
4 oz RumChata
4 oz vanilla vodka
2 tsp powdered sugar
dash cinnamon

Pour cinnamon sugar onto a small plate, and honey onto another.  Dip the rims of 4 glasses into the honey, then the cinnamon sugar.
In a cocktail shaker, pour remaining ingredients over ice.  Shake until chilled and mixed well.
Divide evenly among cinnamon sugar rimmed glasses and enjoy!
