An Oatmeal Cookie cocktail is a delicious drink that tastes just like its namesake. The Oatmeal cookie shot, a favorite of mine because of the delicious and distinct flavor, can be made to serve one or many with my easily adaptable recipe.
Oatmeal Cookie Cocktail
An oatmeal cookie drink is the more refined, boozy dessert cocktail version of a classic oatmeal cookie shot. I’m sharing two versions of this drink today: the original shot option and then an updated version that is made for a festive adult sip!
Not only does this cocktail have a fun name, it has fun ingredients too! Hosting a cookie exchange this year for the holidays? Serving these oatmeal cookie cocktails would be the perfect choice!
I like to give a lot of detail in my recipe posts to guide readers through any questions. If you’re just here for the printable recipe, feel free to click “jump to recipe” right under the title of this post and you’ll head straight there!
Oatmeal Cookie Shot Ingredients
This Oatmeal Cookie Shot tastes just like a delicious baked cookie. This shot is a great way to get your crowd into the spirit when you’re hosting for the holidays. It’s a favorite among bartenders and partygoers for good reason – the yummy flavor and vibrant combination of liquors.
Cinnamon schnapps is a distilled, high proof (80 to 100 proof) spirit flavored with cinnamon. There are many brands of cinnamon schnapps, and the actual flavor will depend on the brand you choose. Some favorites include Goldschlager, Aftershock, Firewater and Hot Damn!.
Irish Cream is a combination of whiskey and cream, which is enjoyable on its own or mixed into a cocktail.
Kahlua is rich flavored coffee liqueur. It’s unique flavor comes from the ingredients including corn syrup, vodka and rum.

How to Make an Oatmeal Cookie Cocktail
While I may not enjoy oatmeal cookie shots as much as I used to, I still like to have fun and enjoy my Oatmeal Cookie drinks as a boozy shake.
Creamy ice cream makes this sippable treat one of my favorites. My two-ingredient no churn vanilla ice cream is a delicious pairing for the ingredients in the Oatmeal Cookie cocktail.
Mix equal parts of cinnamon schnapps, irish cream and Kahlua in a blender with one cup of ice cream. (All parts are equal as listed in the recipe card, plus ice cream.) Blend your oatmeal cookie drink and serve in a rimmed glass.
Don’t have ice cream available? 2% or whole milk will work in a pinch, though the end result won’t be quite as decadent and creamy.
QUICK TIP: Don’t enjoy the heat of cinnamon schnapps? Butterscotch schnapps provides a vanilla and brown sugar flavor that can easily substitute.
How to Rim the Glass for an Oatmeal Cookie Drink
The Oatmeal Cookie drink serves beautifully in a cordial or brandy glass. Rimming the glass with crushed cookie is easier than it looks and makes this boozy shake memorable for all who enjoy!
I used sugar cookies but your favorite cinnamon, butter, or oatmeal cookie will work. Simply place a handful of cookies in your food processor and crush into fine pieces.
Don’t have cookies in your house? I wish I had your willpower! Gold or light brown sugar crystals would pair nicely with this oatmeal cookie drink. Granulated sugar also works well in a pinch.
Prepare a batch of simple syrup. It is a clear and sticky and makes the crushed cookies stick to the rim. It only takes 5 minutes to make a batch of this homemade cocktail ingredient using my simple syrup recipe.
Using two small plates, pour simple syrup onto one and crushed cookies on the other. First, dip the rim of your glass in the simple syrup, and second, into the crushed cookies.
Prepare your rimmed glasses beforehand and place on a tray. Keep the two small plates of simple sugar and crushed cookies, along with clean, empty glasses available for guests who come back for seconds. Don’t be surprised if they ask for your recipe!
Looking for a pretty goblet to serve your snowball cocktail? I love this simple version, but any pretty glassware will do!
