Indulge with the Gingerbread Man & Pumpkin Pie Martini

Tom passed me the Robb Report Host’s Guide for the Holidays and I was really impressed with what I found. Tons of great information! The best wine vintages for your table, rare spirits that make great gifts, a guide to glassware and custom cocktails.

Pumpkin Cocktail for the Holidays

The “Mixing Merry” section was my favorite and not just because they use my motto of, “eating and drinking without guilt is one of the beauties of the holiday spirit.”

I’m going to try out one of their punch recipes for my annual holiday party but I just had to share these two now:

Gingerbread Man by Michael Trujillo

1 oz Skyy Infusions Ginger Vodka
1 oz Faretti Biscotti Famosi liqueur
½ oz cane sugar syrup
1 bar spoon of molasses (cut 50/50 with water)
1 oz cream

Combine ingredients with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass crusted with a mixture of crushed gingerbread cookies, fresh-ground nutmeg and cinnamon.

Pumpkin Pie Martini by Amanda Rosario

1 oz vanilla vodka
½ oz Goldschlager cinnamon schnapps
½ oz Baileys Irish Ceram
1 oz pumpkin puree

Combine ingredients with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini or cocktail glass, rimmed with cinnamon and graham-cracker crumbs (optional).

I might just have to try this Pumpkin Pie Martini as a Thanksgiving nightcap. Cheers!
