My day started with Sweet Rolls and Champagne.
Not bad, eh?
More on this morning’s sweet rolls later, but I wanted to share last night’s Liquid Gingerbread Martini. In case any of you haven’t had enough mimosas this morning.
This deliciousness was the star of my family’s annual Christmas Eve cocktail party. Each year we create a new drink to share with friend over dessert.
This is one smooth martini – it really does taste like gingerbread. It was voted the best one yet! Warning: they go down easy!
Liquid Gingerbread Martini
- 2 oz Domaine de Canton (ginger liquor)
- 1 oz. Vanilla vodka
- 2 oz. Apple cider
- Twist of lemon
Rim a chilled martini glass with a lemon slice followed by spiced graham cracker crumbs.
Place all ingredients in a shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into glass.
Don’t skip the graham crackers on the rim – totally worth the effort.
Cheers to all! I hope everyone is enjoying a Merry Christmas with family (blood-related or self-selected).
I am off to set up my NEW Macbook Air!
