Dough Ball Cookie Dough Whiskey cocktails are the ultimate treat

While many people have discovered a glass of the Dough Ball Cookie Dough Whiskey simply over ice, the flavored whiskey is delightful when shaken into a cocktail. Given that the flavor profile leans a touch sweet, it needs a little balance to highlight the nuance in the glass. Bitters can offer that note.

For example, one cocktail, S’mores, is a martini version of the classic dessert. Putting aside the preferred marshmallow doneness, the relatively simple cocktail benefits from the Dough Ball because the whiskey has a slight caramel flavor. When mixed with chocolate and graham cracker, the flavors hit all the right notes. It is a sipping dessert worthy of the campfire setting.

Here’s how to make S’mores from Dough Ball Cookie Dough Whiskey.



  • Crushed graham cracker for cocktail glass rim
  • Toasted marshmallows


  • Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker and vigorously shake until chilled. Drizzle chocolate in the bottom of the martini glass, which has been rimmed with crushed graham cracker. Strain cocktail into glass. Top with toasted marshmallow.

While the S’mores cocktail is a drinkable dessert, it isn’t the only option behind the bar. Of course, this flavored whiskey would be delightful in a hot chocolate or coffee, it is equally enjoyable in a classic cocktail, like a Manhattan or Old Fashioned.

Since there is that caramel note in the flavor whiskey and it invokes the taste of a cookie, it works quite well in a boozy shake. A simple scoop of vanilla ice cream with some cookie crumbles on top brings that whimsy to the glass.

Also, why not play off a salted caramel slant with the Dough Ball. For example, combine the Dough Ball with some Mozart Chocolate Liquor and serve it in a glass with a salted caramel rim. It will be the perfect dessert cocktail.

Dough Ball Cookie Dough Whiskey can be found at various retailers, including Walmart, Total Wine and Safeway. Although not available nationwide, more information can be found online. The suggested retail price for a bottle is $29.99.

Whether enjoyed by the summer campfire, football tailgate, chilly winter night or romantic evening on the couch, there is always a reason to pour some Dough Ball Cookie Dough Whiskey.
