We’re saying so long to sloe gin and hello to Gingerbread flavoured Vodka!
Infusing alcohol as a gift has definitely risen in popularity over the last few years as it marries ‘going the extra mile’ for a loved one with something that always gets the party started; booze.
This year we’re saying so long to sloe gin and hello to Gingerbread flavoured Vodka! Gingerbread is one of our most loved flavours when winter comes so why not blend beautiful ginger, cinnamon, cloves, sugar and vanilla to create a sweet and spicy liquor you can lap up at the end of the month.
- Poor out your vodka in to a large jug so you can easily stir in some of the ingredients.
- In your air tight bottle place the ginger chopped and the cinnamon sticks.
- Add the sugar, cloves, and vanilla paste to your jug of vodka and give it a good stir
- Funnel your vodka mix from the jug in to your air tight bottle leaving a little breathing room at the top.
- Write the date three weeks from making on a tag and attach it to the neck of you bottle.
- If the bottle is a gift add some ribbon and a little personalised message from yourself and keep your fingers crossed you can try it!
Good things come to those who wait, and this is definitely the case for Gingerbread Vodka. You can start sipping after 3 weeks but rumour has it that when you come back to it a year later (if you have any left of course) it is even sweeter and delicious than ever before.
If you’re making this recipe for your own bar cart and need a little inspiration for how to consume it than look no further than the Gingerbread Vodka Martini! Combine two shots of your homemade tipple, 1 shot of Cointreau, 1 shot of simple syrup, a dash of lemon, and an egg white in your cocktail shaker then proceed to shake well. Strain into two of your loveliest glasses and if you’re feeling extra, lightly tap over a bit of powdered cinnamon.
We certainly wouldn’t judge you for slurping it out of your hip flask whilst singing some festive carols!
You can also try Gingerbread Vodka with some of the usual suspects like Coke, soda, single cream and ginger beer. And we certainly wouldn’t judge you for slurping it out of your hip flask whilst singing some festive carols!
