Gingerbread Martini


I know its Monday, but I think that’s EXACTLY why you need to go home and make this tonight. Not only is it so festive, but oh em gee, it’s so delicious! I am most positive that I had one to many on Saturday night, because I woke up Sunday morning with a bit of a headache and so we headed out for a fabulously greasy breakfast. It was perfect.

This martini is so delicious, you’re just going to want another, and another, and another…hmm maybe you should save it until Turkey Day! No, jk, you can’t. Its perfect, it warms you right up inside on a cool night. Do as we did, start a fire, dim the lights, curl up, and drink away people, drink away!

Drewski created this fabulous drink after I found the Gingerbread Liquor and said “Make me something fantastic with this please” And wowsers, he certainly did! He gets all the credit for this one, when it comes to bartending, I stay far away from it (other than the drinking part! 😉 ) haha! So go have one! It’s the perfect drink for the season! You can bet you’ll find me with one in my hand on Thanksgiving!!

Happy Monday!!
