Cookies and Cocktails: Pairing Sweet Treats with Adult Beverages

We take snacking seriously at Michel & Augustin. While you can never go wrong with Cheese Biscuits and other savory snacks, sometimes you just need something a little sweet. Time to reach for the cookies – and an adult beverage! Not only for salty and savory pairings, cookies and adult beverages go together wonderfully when you take their flavor profiles into consideration. Don’t know where to begin? The Troublemakers of Taste are here to help with your cocktail snacks!

Lemon Cookie Pairings

Lemon Cookies & Margaritas

If you’re a fan of citrus cookies and cocktails, you’re in for a treat! Bright and sweet with a hint of tanginess, lemon cookies or lemon sugar cookies are the cocktail snacks you want with a classic margarita. The lemon of the cookie and the lime of the margarita make for a refreshing pairing to enjoy at any get-together, dinner party or weekend treat!

For even more excitement for your taste buds, don’t forget to salt the rim of your glass. It’ll help bring out all of the flavors of your adult beverage – and your cookies!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pairings

Chocolate Chip Cookies & Red Wine/Beer

Milk isn’t the only chocolate chip cookie companion. The caramelized butter and sugar and slightly bittersweet taste of chocolate chips offer plenty of variety with your adult beverages. It just depends on your mood! For example, you could try a full-bodied, moderately dry red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon to help balance the sweetness of chocolate chips. The light roast flavors of a stout also complement the sweetness of chocolate chip cookies surprisingly well!

Adult Milk & Cookies

Can’t get enough of the classic pairing of milk and cookies? Your two favorites are all grown up with a White Russian! Easy to make, all you need to do is add vodka, coffee liqueur and cream to a frosty glass. Dunk, sip and enjoy your cookies and cocktails! If you want to bump up the elegance switch out your chocolate chip cookies for these decadent dark chocolate shortbread cookies. The sprinkle of sea salt gives a savory touch to the rich sweetness of the dark chocolate.

Shortbread Cookie Pairings

Shortbread cookies and cocktails with Irish coffee

Shortbread Cookies & Irish Coffee

Butter is better! The buttery sweetness of shortbread cookies makes them delicious cocktail snacks. If you want something warm to go with your shortbread cookie (or Cookie Squares!), try an Irish coffee. The light and fruity flavors of Irish whiskey enhance the sweetness of shortbread, while the bitterness of coffee provides the perfect balance.

Shortbread Cookies & An Old-Fashioned

Want more shortbread cookie and cocktail options? The notes of spice and citrus of an Old-Fashioned or mulled wine offer a beautiful contrast to the buttery simplicity of pure shortbread cookies.

Black and White Cookie Pairings

Black and White Cookies & Manhattans

A New York staple, black and white cookies offer flavors of vanilla, chocolate and a splash of lemon. While enjoyed by many alone (they’re that good!), these cookies make for cocktail snacks we can’t get enough of – especially with a Manhattan. The strong and slightly spicy flavor of this classic cocktail helps to balance the sweetness of these icing-topped cookies.

If you’re not a fan of the spirit’s spicy and pepper notes, you can make your cocktail using bourbon instead. Even though rye whiskey is the traditional choice, bourbon can add a touch more sweetness that will enhance the vanilla flavors of the black and white cookie.

Peanut Butter Cookie Pairings

Peanut Butter Cookies & Whiskey/IPA/White Wine

Peanut butter cookies and cocktails? Oui oui! Nutty with notes of brown sugar, peanut butter cookies pair wonderfully with cocktails and the semi-sweetness of whiskey, IPAs and a good Pinot Grigio. If you want to keep the quintessential milk and cookies experience, peanut butter cookies pair well with a White Russian.

Peanut Butter Cookies & Strawberry Daiquiris

Looking for a fun cookies and cocktails pairing? Try a strawberry daiquiri! Peanut butter cookies and the sweet, fruity flavors of strawberry daiquiris are reminiscent of a common childhood favorite: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
