The Ginger Spice Cocktail
by Mixologist Gian Magnone
2.5oz Absolut Vodka infused with Real Ginger
A small piece of 24k gold leaf is wrapped on top of a cinnamon stick.
Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin with ice, shake vigorously then pour contents into rocks glass.
The ginger spice cocktail is similar in flavor to the famous oatmeal cookie shot or martini, however the natural ginger gives the drink a racy infusion of spice. The Goldschlager adds a distinct cinnamon taste while the creaminess of the Bailey’s simultaneously soothes the pallet. The unique spicy taste of the ginger spice definitely makes it a fall cocktail.
