Gingerbread Martini

This recipe calls for homemade ginger syrup but you can buy a commercially prepared version at specialty food stores (try the coffee aisle – This is what I would do).

Ingredients:

Ginger Syrup:

3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
2 sticks of cinnamon
3 whole cloves

Directions:

  1. Simmer water, sugar, ginger, cloves and cinnamon stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 3/4 cup, about 15 minutes.
  2. Pour hot syrup through a fine sieve and chill.
  3. Let stand 20 minutes until using, so all sediment has settled to the bottom.

Servings: Approximately 3/4 cup.

Martini:

Ingredients:

ice
2 ounces vodka
1/2 to 1 ounce gingerbread syrup

Directions:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add the vodka and gingerbread syrup.
  3. Cover and shake vigorously until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds.
  4. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

    I really wish I could taste each and every cocktail concoction in your blog. Fact is I am allergic to alcohol. But I am sure they’re all drinkterrific 🙂

    And as they say: drink but don’t drive and if you drive don’t drink! That simple 🙂

    Cheers!
