  • whipped cream
  • pepperidge farm gingerbread cookie


  • Mix first five ingredients in shaker with ice.
  • Shake very well.
  • Pour into a chilled martini glass that has been rimmed with graham cracker crumbs. ( I poured a little Bailey's in a saucer, dipped the rims, then dipped them into the graham cracker crumbs.I actually crushed them myself so they were not SO powdery).
  • Top with whipped cream and a Pepperidge Farm gingerbread cookie -- awesome!

  1. I made these for last years Christmas party. We always host a signature drink along with the beer and wine. Our bartender couldn't keep up with the demand! When invites went out this year for the party people asked if I was going to have these we'll be making them again this year. The only thing i'll do different is buy more ingredients and syrup! The syrup was hard to find at Christmas time. I had to bribe starbucks to sell me some of their gingerbread syrup but it wasn't nearly enough. Out of the 100 people at the party, I think probably 75% had one of these!
  2. these are to die for!!! I've made recipe copies on little Christmas recipe cards & sent them out with my Christmas cards for everyone on my list!! Cheers & Merry Christmas
  3. This was good. I ended up doubling the Ginger syrup so that the gingerbread flavor would come through. I didn't have vanilla ice cream so the second martini got vanilla vodka and that was good too. My DH said it was very close to our white Russians that we drink but with the double Ginger, it made the drink better.


I am a native Carolinian, mother of 5, grandmother of 6, (soon to be 7). Although I am a grandmother, I am also the mother of a nine year old son! and yes, I have grandkids older than nine...LOL. I love to cook but work part time as an administrator, and spend the rest of my time taking care of my family, being a baseball Mom, and gardening. My husband is terminally ill with pancreatic cancer, so although I am busy with the kids, he is my, OUR first priority, trying to make everyday count, and loving every minute that we have together as a family.
