If you love the flavor of Gingerbread and taste of Manhattans, then you’ll love the two flavors in the same drink! Such a smooth cocktail that goes down well! It was an idea of Matt Parkinson of Viand Bar & Kitchen in Chicago because the establishment was using gingerbread syrup for some of its coffee drinks. Matt decided try switching out the sweet vermouth for the syrup, and lo and behold, the drink was born. It’s great to have this as one of your holiday drinks, and it’s really easy to make.
God bless and Cheers,
3 oz of Bourbon ( Buffalo Trace)
1/2 oz of gingerbread syrup ( Torani brand )
1 dash of Angostura bitters
Marasca cherry from Italy (Luxardo)
Combine bourbon, gingerbread syrup and angostura bitters in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a Marasca Cherry and crystallized ginger on a toothpick.
