How it all went down
We asked you to wow us with your most festive holiday cookie and cocktail recipes, and did you ever! After reviewing all the delicious submissions, it was narrowed down to our three favorite cookies and three favorite cocktails. We picked the best bakers in our Creative Department to personally prepare the cookies, and gathered all the cocktail ingredients for our Title Nine mixologist to work her magic.
Then the fun began, as we invited the team at our Emeryville headquarters to put on their judging caps and try the treats and drinks. There was much discussion (which cookie was the most chocolaty) and some surprises (pepper really does taste good in a cocktail). The votes were cast, and the winners revealed. Congratulations to Julie and Melissa for submitting the winning recipes. They will each receive a $25 Title Nine gift certificate and of course, ultimate bragging rights!
Now grab a mixer or a bucket of ice and try ’em for yourself
We’ve listed the top three cookie and cocktail recipes below. You can find all the submissions in our original post. Thanks to everyone who took the time to submit a recipe!
