The Gingerbread Martini

The Gingerbread Martini We’re in the height of the holidays and nothing quite says “’Tis the Season” like a fantastic seasonal cocktail such as the delicious Gingerbread Martini – a true glass of Christmas. To create, 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. If you really want to impress at the upcoming slew of holiday parties, 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. Happy Holidays!
