Thinking of Drinking: Gingerbread Man-tini

It is time for holiday parties. Check out my segment on Let's Talk Live! Start with some bubbly!

After the bubbly, I like to start with a perfect signature cocktail. I like to have one drink that is a little more special when the guests walk through the door. Something with a cute garnish. 

Gingerbread Man -tini

1 shot Knob Creek Whiskey

½ shot Pisa Liqueur

½ shot of 79 Gold Caramel Liqueur

1 shot cream

1 shot gingerbread simple syrup

Garnish: Gingerbread Man (recipe below)

Shake over ice and serve.

Gingerbread Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon clove

Combine sugar and water in pot. Cook over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature (about two hours).

Pour into a bottle, and refrigerate.
