A few weeks ago, I received a HUGE package from the folks at Starbucks. Inside was another box, and then another and another. After all the packaging material had been removed, I finally discovered a gigantic martini glass filled and the ingredients needed to create a Gingerbread Lattetini. It was a bit too early in the day for a mixed drink, so I set the glass aside and forgot about it for a while. Fast forward to yesterday: I was cleaning off my desk and wondered what to do with this gigantic glass. Then I wondered why I was wondering what to do, after all there was only one option — drink up!
The Gingerbread Lattetini is a simple drink to whip up and is definitely festive. It's creamy, smooth, and sinfully sipable. It is, however, a tad on the sweet side; almost like an alcoholic version of a creamy cinnamon butterscotch candy. It is also simple to make, so if it sounds like something you'd like to indulge in,
1 part Starbucks Cream Liqueur (or any cream liqueur of your choice)
1 part Butterscotch Schnapps
1 part Cinnamon Schnapps
- Mix all ingredients in a mixing cup with ice.
- Shake and strain into a martini glass.
- Sprinkle with a dash nutmeg and serve.
