Thirsty Thursday: Satisfy Holiday Cravings with a Gingerbread Cocktail

Let’s face it. Building a gingerbread house is a lot of work. But the holiday season without gingerbread is like Rudolf without a red nose. Before you get your rolling pin ready and your gumdrops assembled, try consuming your gingerbread in liquid form with Alie and Georgia’s gently spiced Gingerbread Housed cocktail.

With just a few simple ingredients and a cocktail shaker, you’ll have a gingerbread treat that came together in just minutes. Start by infusing your rum the day before with cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh ginger. Then the cocktail gets a dose of almond liqueur, vanilla extract and molasses, an essential component to anything gingerbread. Tame the robust mixture with a splash of heavy cream, and don’t forget the best part: the frosting and decorations. Rim the glass with snowy white frosting, and decorate with hot red cinnamon candies and gumdrops. It’s everything we love about gingerbread in a festive, holiday drink.

Bottoms up, folks:

Gingerbread Housed
Recipe courtesy Alie and Georgia

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. spiced infused rum
  • 1 oz amaretto
  • 1 oz heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. molasses
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract

Garnish:

  • Vanilla frosting
  • Red hots
  • Gumdrops

Directions:

Infuse rum overnight by adding 10 whole cloves, a small sliced and peeled ginger root (or substitute with a teaspoon of powdered ginger), plus two whole nutmegs and two cinnamon sticks. In a shaker filled with ice, add the spiced rum, amaretto, heavy cream, vanilla, and molasses and shake vigorously. Set shaker aside and rim a glass tumbler or mug with icing and decorate with red hots and gumdrops. Pour the drink into the decorated mugs, and enjoy your liquid gingerbread house! Then make an appointment with your dentist.
