But, first let me tell you a bit about how I decided to make a Gingerbread cocktail.
This year we decorated the Christmas tree in our living room in a traditional style with lots of red, green, and plaid! When I think about a traditional Christmas, I always think of gingerbread houses decorated with all sorts of confections.
I also think about fresh gingerbread cookies baking in the oven. The distinctly spicy sweet scent that fills the kitchen. And, of course the delicious gingerbread flavor that tickles your taste buds!
This creamy gingerbread cocktail is reminiscent of all those things. Sweet and spicy gingerbread with a hint of chocolate confection!
I rimmed the glasses with crushed sugared gingerbread men cookies and gingerbread syrup for an authentic flavor!
A Gingerbread Cocktail Recipe for holiday entertaining.
To give this cocktail a real ginger kick, I used ginger bitters. I have never used bitters before. They pack a real punch only a few dashes is all you need to add a real depth of flavor.
- 2 sugared gingerbread man cookies, finally crushed
- 2 oz gingerbread syrup (plus 1/2 tbsp. for rimming)
- 1 1/5 ounces crème de coco liqueur
- Dillons Ginger bitters
- 2 to 3 ounces half and half cream
- ice cubes
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- Dip rim of cocktail glass in gingerbread syrup and then into crushed gingerbread cookie crumbs. Carefully add 2 ice cubes.
- Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add gingerbread syrup, creme de cocoa, 2 dashes ginger bitters, and cream. Shake well and strain into prepared cocktail glass.
- Gently swift cocoa powder on top.
