I love making merry mocktails this time of year and this gingerbread martini mocktail is especially festive! It has all of the flavor of your favorite Christmas cookies right in a drinkable glass! They are great with our gingerbread pancakes or on their own.
1 C heavy cream
1 bottle Dry Sparkling ginger soda
1-2 T brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
4 tsp. molasses, divided for rimming the glass
1/8 tsp. allspice
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 C gluten-free gingersnaps, crushed
Put 2 tsp. molasses on a plate
On another plate, place the crushed gluten-free gingersnap cookies
Rim each glass with some molasses then dip them into the crushed gingersnaps
In a shaker, combine heavy cream, vanilla Dry Sparkling soda, allspice, cinnamon, brown sugar and 2 tsp. molasses
Scrape off any excess foam created from shaking
Divide among two glasses (I used white wine tumblers)
Enjoy on their own or with fresh gluten-free gingerbread men cookies!
You may have to make this in two batches if your shaker bottle is smaller. Be sure to scrape of excess foam after shaking. Also, any vanilla soda will work but I love Dry Sparkling as it isn’t overly sweet and it tastes so clean and smooth.
