ALPENA, Mich. __ Merry Christmas! The holiday season brings a host of opportunities to gather with friends and family. Earlier this week I caught up with the Red Brick Tap and Barrel’s co-owner Brooke, to show you how to craft a festive holiday drink.


4 ounces vanilla vodka,

2 ounce kaluha,

1 ounce oatmeal cookie creamer


Oatmeal cookie pies


Step 1

Fill a cocktail share with ice

Step 2

Add vanilla vodka, kahlua and oatmeal cookie creamer to the shaker.

Step 3

Shake mixture vigorously.

Step 4

Top drink with cinnamon, don’t be shy, this is what gives the drink that warm holiday flavor.

Step 5

Split 1 oatmeal cookie pie in half. Take half of the pie and make a slit that will allow you to place the half cookie on the rim of the glass as a garnish.

Now its time for you to sit back and enjoy. Tis the season!
