- 4 oz vodka
- 2 oz Kahlua *or a coffee liqueur
- 4 oz half and half
- 2 oz Gingerbread syrup *see direcly below

In a small saucepan combine all the ingredients for Gingerbread Syrup. Place over medium heat and bring to a simmer, consistently stirring until sugar dissolves. Let cool and then place into a glass container with a tight fitting lid. Refrigerate until chilled, about 4 hours.
Place honey and brown sugar onto two sperate plate or wide bottomed bowls. Dip the rims of the 2 martini glasses into honey and then brown sugar.
In a martini shaker or a glass measuring cup combine vodka, Kahlua, half and half and Gingerbread syrup. Mix well. Pour into rimmed martini glasses and enjoy immediately.
*Please use as many organic ingredients as possible.
- If using a martini shaker, add a few ice cubes to help create extra icy cold martinis. Additionally, keeping the vodka and Kahlua in the freezer will help to make the martinis extra frosty.
- The Gingerbread syrup recipe above will yield approximately 1 cup, enough for 4 batches of Gingerbread Martinis or 8 martinis in whole.
- Either molasses or honey may be used in rimming the martini glass. However, honey does tend to be more beautiful in presentation.
