When it comes to Christmas, I can’t help but to go all out. I love having fun with Christmas recipes, creating not only the cutest foods, but making them the most delicious too. This fun cocktail is no exception, this drink just screams Christmas and nothing else. It’s sweet and slightly chocolatey with just a hint of peppermint and ginger. Think gingerbread martini meets chocolate martini…basically it’s Christmas in a cup with a hit of vodka…
The key to this cocktail is the molasses and pinch of ginger. It makes the drink sweet, gingery and all things cozy!
4 ounces vodka
2 ounces Kahlúa or more to taste
4 tablespoons chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoons molasses
1/8 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup heavy cream or whole milk
whipped cream candy canes and gingerbread cookies, for serving (optional)
In a cocktail shaker combine the vodka, Kahlúa, chocolate syrup, vanilla, molasses, and ginger. Shake until well combined.
Add ice and shake again.
Strain into 4 glasses.
Top off each glass with heavy cream.
Dollop with whipped cream and garnish as desired.
