You CAN catch this Gingerbread Man!

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are ready for another great cocktail to make your holiday celebrations merrier. Today, we bring you…

The Gingerbread Cocktail!

This one calls for a little prep work, but it is totally worth it. To make the syrup put 1 cup water, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1-inch piece fresh ginger (thinly sliced), 2 cinnamon sticks and 3 whole cloves in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes (until the sugar dissolves), stirring occasionally.

Now, remove the syrup from the heat and let cool (about 20 mintues). Once cool, remove the ginger, cinnamon sticks and cloves.

For the expresso, mix 1 cup boiling water, 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder, 3 to 4 tablespoons, Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) until the powder is dissolved. Let this cool.

To make the cocktail, Combine 1 cup syrup with espresso/hazelnut liqueur mixture in a large martini shaker. Add 4 ounces Kaluha and shake to combine. Pour over ice-filled glasses and serve.
Cheers Y’all!
