This gingerbread martini mocktail is especially festive for the holidays! It has all the flavor of your favorite Christmas cookies.
In addition to this, I love making more merry mocktails. Be sure to check out all of our Christmas mocktails!
This mocktail has so many warm and cozy flavors like allspice, cinnamon, molasses and brown sugar.
It is simple to make…much simpler than gingerbread men. But if you do want to go all out, our gluten-free gingerbread men are the perfect accompaniment!
I also love pairing this gingerbread martini mocktail with our gingerbread pancakes. They are topped with sugared cranberries that add a nice pop of color to the soft colored drink.
When I say that I love gingerbread, I mean I REALLY love gingerbread. My step mom would always make gingerbread for me when I came to visit at Christmastime because she knew I loved it.
I love gingerbread so much that for my daughters third birthday, I put together a gingerbread party for her.
We had stuff to make gingerbread houses out of gluten-free graham crackers and even had the most gorgeous gingerbread house sugar cookies from my friend at Enchanted Cookie Boutique. I mean, just look how cute they are! Each kid got a little lunch with a gingerbread man cookie cutter attached to it.
The girls had a blast and I loved how cheery it all was! Don’t worry, I didn’t do it in May or anything. Making gingerbread martini mocktails are couldn’t be more simple. Chances are, you have all the ingredients on hand as well. Our brown sugar simple syrup is a great addition.
While I use Dry Sparkling ginger soda, any ginger soda will do. I just love the flavor and lower sugar profile of Dry.
We hope you all enjoy this holiday cup of cheer! If you are looking for more cheer, this paleo and vegan dairy-free hot chocolate looks pretty tasty.
