Gingerbread Martini

If you’re still in the mood for a great martini, I’d suggest whipping up this Gingerbread Martini.  Simply stir together 2 tablespoons ginger liqueur, 2 tablespoons vanilla-citrus liqueur, 1 ½ tablespoons coffee-flavored rum, 1 tablespoon honey and 2 teaspoons whipping cream in a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds or until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a chilled martini glass. For pretty presentation, dip glass rims in ginger liqueur and crushed gingersnaps and freeze overnight for a festive and tasty addition to your libation. Garnish with a partially split vanilla bean brushed with liqueur and rolled in sugar.
