Christmas cookies are a staple around the holidays. We’ve teamed up with Danielle’s Delights, a Breckenridge-local baker, to pair 6 holiday cookies with our favorite Breckenridge Distillery Spirits – and we’ve added a cocktail, too! Whether you are decorating with friends and family, gifting a festive treat, or cozying up with loved ones this holiday season, these pairings will get you into the festive mood and give everyone something so smile about. If you don’t have the time to bake yourself, order these Christmas cookies from Danielle’s Delights or visit her food cart right outside of the Breckenridge Distillery at 1925 Airport Road.
Happy Holidays (and baking), from Breckenridge!
Breckenridge Rum Cask Finish + Gingerbread Cookies
Breckenridge Rum Cask Finish + Gingerbread
The buttery, rummy, flavor of the Breckenridge Rum Cask Finish is nicely complemented by the spicy ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove in this holiday favorite. You might even want to dip this one!
Cocktail Suggestion: My Grandma’s Recipe
Breckenridge Port Cask Finish + Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
Breckenridge Port Cask + Chocolate Crinkle
On the other side of the spectrum, the dark, sultana raisin flavor of the Breckenridge Port Cask Finish is what makes this dram a fan favorite. The rich cocoa, fudgey texture of the cookie is reminiscent of the spirit itself. And, speaking of fan favorites, you might want to whip up an Obi-Wan Old Fashioned while you wait for these to bake.
Cocktail Suggestion: Obi-Wan Old Fashioned
Breckenridge Bourbon + Warm Apple Pie Cookies
Breckenridge Bourbon + Apple Pie Cookies
Nothing says holiday season like a Warm Apple Pie – but Danielle took this a step further and shrunk this classic into a cookie! With the cinnamon and caramel apple filling, we had no choice but to pair this with our “bread and butter” Breckenridge Bourbon – pairing perfectly with the candied orange and brown sugar notes found in the dram.
Cocktail Suggestion: Fa, La, La, La, Nog
Breckenridge Pear Vodka + Lemon Poppyseed Shortbread Cookies
Breckenridge Pear Vodka + Lemon Poppyseed Shortbread
For something on the lighter side, this pairing is great all year long. A bright and light citrus cookie is exactly what this Palisade Pear Vodka needs to shine! You’re going to want to try this combination with the Winter Wonderland cocktail – your taste buds will thank you later!
Cocktail Suggestion: Winter Wonderland
Breckenridge PX Sherry Cask + Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Breckenridge PX Sherry Cask + Oatmeal Raisin
There are few things in life better than a soft, well-baked Oatmeal Raisin Cookie from Danielle’s Delights. The Breckenridge PX Sherry Cask Finish gets its final aging from ancient solera barrels, reminiscent of the hearty oats and bursts of sweet raisin in the Oatmeal Cookie.
Cocktail Suggestion: Après Ski
Breckenridge Spiced Whiskey + Snickerdoodle Cookies
Breckenridge Spiced Whiskey + Snickerdoodle
The unofficially dubbed “Christmas-in-a-bottle” whiskey – Breckenridge Spiced Whiskey – rounds off our lineup. The traditional holiday spices used in the mash bring out the warm earthy spices in the Snickerdoodle, making this one you won’t want to miss this season.
