Video: A Cookie-Flavored Cocktail To Suit Santa

Watch out Santa. Your rosy cheeks are about to get rosier. Daniel K. Nelson (of the Writers Room andWolf in Sheep's Clothing) and Steve Livigni (from Pour Vous, La Descarga, and Harvard & Stone) of Drink Inc. created a festive twist on the old fashioned for the Hungry Channel, and it's making us wish we were the ones delivering presents this year.

The cocktail -- called Santa's Little Helper -- is made with whiskey, creme de cacao, brown sugar, and two different types of bitters and is said to taste like a holiday cookie. That sure sounds a heck of a lot better than the cake-flavored vodka that was just introduced by Smirnoff.

So what if it's only lunch hour? We want one, now. Check it out.
