A staple of any holiday platter or desert buffet over the holiday season is the gingerbread man. Few iconic images completely encompass an entire season in one cookie, but the gingerbread man is one man that won’t let you down this December.
The gingerbread man personified in the fable is almost everything you look for in a real man: dark and handsome, athletic, sugar sweet, and determined to live like his last day is today, no matter what. The tenacity alone is enough to be admired.
If you are single this holiday season, we’re not suggesting you wolf down an entire platter of gingerbread men in one sitting. Summer bodies are built in the winter, no thanks to the delicious dessert of Christmas that are gingerbread cookies. Admire this sexy molasses decadent from afar, making room for only one or two. Or, take your little ginger man in liquid form with the Gingerbread Martini.
The Gingerbread Martini:
- 2 oz Stoli Vanil
- 1 oz Irish cream liqueur
- 1/2 oz coffee liqueur
- 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
Shake all ingredients over ice. Strain into a gingerbread cookie-rimmed coupe glass. Garnish with whipped cream and crushed gingerbread cookie on top.
Enjoy and drink responsibly.
