Gingerbread Martini

Ingredients
  • Ginger Syrup:
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, coarsely chopped
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 3 whole cloves
  • Martini:
  • ice
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 to 1 ounce gingerbread syrup
Directions

GINGER SYRUP: Simmer water, sugar, ginger, cloves and cinnamon stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 3/4 cup, about 15 minutes. Pour hot syrup through a fine sieve and chill. Let stand 20 minutes until using, so all sediment has settled to the bottom. Servings: Approximately 3/4 cup.

MARTINI: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka and gingerbread syrup. Cover and shake vigorously until combined and chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

This recipe calls for homemade ginger syrup but you can buy a commercially prepared version at specialty food stores (try the coffee aisle).
