Gingerbread Martini The Best Cocktail This Christmas Season

A Gingerbread Martini is a creamy cocktail that tastes like your favorite Christmas cookie, but in liquid form. When you think of Christmas cookies, you immediately think of cute little gingermen that are decorated with white icing. It is a symbol of the Christmas season. Not that we can’t eat gingerbread throughout the rest of the year, but there is something magical about those cookies. Now you can mix up a festive holiday cocktail without all the mess of baking those cute little cookies!

I bet a Gingerbread Martini sounds good to you right now. I mean, Halloween is over so that means it’s Christmas season, right? So many people have decided that 2020 has been such a crappy year that they are going to start their Christmas celebrations early by decorating and shopping right away. Using that logic, I think we should up the anti and start our holiday baking and celebrating early too…which means getting our drinks ready to go!

Gingerbread

Gingerbread is a type of baked good that is flavored with ginger and molasses. Additionally, it generally contains cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and is usually sweetened with brown sugar, corn syrup, or honey.

Popular gingerbread foods are gingerbread cookies, gingerbread loaf cakes, and ginger snaps. Not to mention gingerbread dough that makes up the fun elements for making gingerbread houses!

Nowadays, we take a good thing and exploit the crap out of it – think pumpkin spice everything! And gingerbread is somewhat similar, but hasn’t been completely overdone (not yet anyway!). However, we can find gingerbread lattes, gingerbread muffins, and now even gingerbread martinis. And, I for one, am extremely happy that gingerbread vodka exists so that we can drink our favorite Christmas cookie.
