Gingerbread Martini

Welcome to day three of The Twelve Boozy Days of Christmas!

This drink is absolutely scrumptious. I swear. It’s an alcohol infused dessert cocktail. Whats not to love?!?!  I originally had this drink at Outback Steakhouse  and knew I had to figure out how to make one at home.  I’m not rich enough to go out and pay for one of these drinks every time I crave one…which is a lot…

I used my homemade gingerbread syrup in this recipe but if you want to use pre-made syrup go for it.

    I rarely drink alcohol, but this is just the type I love! Lots of sweet. And Kahlua is my fave!

    This one looks delish – they all do – but, I can no longer tolerate alcohol! It is a bummer! I really miss a cheery little drink (or few) and the red cheeks and giggles that glow along with it!
    I love this idea for posts!
    What fun… and which one were you drinking when you went to look at the Christmas tree last night?

    Not a martini. Martini = vermouth, gin, olive brine. Thats it.
