Gingerbread…gingerbread…ginger…all the way…oh what fun it is indeed! Holiday cocktails kick it into high gear this season with a little help from the limited-edition Kahlua Gingerbread (http://www.kahlua.com). Getting in the spirit is a cinch with a sweet option that showcases the quintessential flavors of Christmas.

The rich flavors of Kahlua (made from 100% Arabica coffee beans and sugarcane spirit, sourced from the Veracruz mountains) combine with gingerbread and nutmeg, plus a dash of cinnamon and clove to warm and delight even the Scroog-iest of Scrooges. Priced at only $17.99, this is a gift that just keeps on giving; whether you enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or mixed into coffee drinks and cocktails. Speaking of cocktails, here’s a recipe for the Kahlua Cookie Martini – a cocktail that satiates holiday cravings with no baking required.

Kahlua Cookie Martini
½ part Kahlúa Gingerbread
1 ½ parts Absolut® Vodka
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and enjoy.
