Doug Winship over at the Pegu Blog, just did a write-up on his very different approach to the Hiram Walker Gingerbread Cocktail Competition. He may be a day late and a dollar short but he’s got one hell-of-a recipe to share (well, two recipes actually).
When you think gingerbread, you think dessert, right? Of course! So, not only did Doug throw together a sweet & simple dessert sipper (which you can easily replicate for your holiday party, no excuses!), but he paired it with a yummy-looking treat (as in food) made with the Gingerbread Liqueur.
The drink? Tony. The dessert? The Tiger. The recipes? I’ll give them to you here but make sure and click through to read the funny story about how they came to be.
1 part Hiram Walker Gingerbread Liqueur
1 part Tia Maria
Combine ingredients over ice and stir gently just enough to cool but not chill. Strain into a cocktail glass. (C’mon, you can do this!)
2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
8 tablespoons Hiram Walker Gingerbread Liqueur
1 pack thin gingersnaps
Check out his post for full instructions. They’re detailed but easy-to-do!
