Eat, drink and say “yum”

Eat, drink and say “yum”

The weather has cooled down, which means our ovens are heating up! Holidays have long been associated with food, but not all festivities require hours in the kitchen. A holiday cocktail party is a fun and relatively easy way to bring friends and family together without the need for table settings and fancy fare. A harmonious pairing of seasonal drinks and Mother Rucker’s sweet treats can go a long way.

Below are a few of our favorite cookie and cocktail combinations:

Eggnog with the Holiday Cookie Brittle Collection Nothing says Christmas cocktail like this adult version of milk and cookies. Our Holiday Cookie Brittle Collection features a merry mix of classic holiday flavors such as Cocoa, Eggnog, Gingerbread and Peppermint. Combined with the rich taste and smooth texture of eggnog, your guests will definitely come back for more (Santa, too!).

Wassail with Hibiscus Five Spice Sugar Gems With all the holiday flavors that go into wassail—mulled cider, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange, apples and more—pairing it with our delicious Hibiscus Five Spice Sugar Gems is a no-brainer. Star anise, cloves, fennel, cinnamon and white pepper are blended with dried Hibiscus flowers to create a distinctive and irresistible sugar cookie that is the perfect complement to this refreshing wintertime drink.

Spiced Apple Cider with Cinnamon Cookie Brittle Apples and cinnamon make one of the most popular and hearty combinations of holiday flavors. Serving apple cider with a splash (or more) of spiced rum and our Cinnamon Cookie Brittle is a sure sign to guests that they’ve made it onto the nice list.

Hot Chocolate and Peppermint Schnapps with Deluxe Chocolate Brownie ’Tis the season to indulge, and Mother Rucker’s Deluxe Chocolate Brownies are just the thing! Pair these over-the-top fudgy brownies with a steaming mint-chocolate libation, and you can keep your sweet tooth satisfied all season long!

Hot Toddy with Spice Cookies Similar to spiced apple cider, this whiskey, cinnamon and cider concoction will warm up any winter gathering. Our soft Spice Cookies are fan favorites this time of year and enhance the flavors infusing your hot toddy.
