Growing up in an Italian family these tricolor cookies have always been a dessert staple. If by any chance you aren't familiar with them you need to go to your local bakery and prepare to fall in love! They are an almond flavored cake-like cookie with raspberry jam in between each brightly colored layer and topped with a chocolate coating. ARE YOU DROOLING YET?
The other night I was craving these cookies and my wheels starting turning with drink ideas. Creating dessert cocktails is kind of my "thing". I love the idea of finishing the night with a drink that is also a dessert. (It's a win-win in my book!) After a nice dinner with my honey we came home and I told him to sit tight while I make him one of my newest creations. (You always need an official taste tester!) I brought him over this Rainbow Cookie Martini and his face lit up. (As we both grew up loving these cookies) He is not always a dessert cocktail guy so I took it as a big compliment that he quickly drank the entire thing and of course snagged the cookie off of the rim.
If you want to impress guests at a gathering or are craving a decadent dessert drink this is a drink recipe you MUST try! It's easy to prepare and delicious to drink. Cheers!
