Gingerbread goes hand in hand with the holidays. That is why I love this cocktail so much.

This cocktail is so easy to drink because it tastes just like a gingerbread cookie.

It is so easy to make and can be made in minutes for a single serving for yourself or made to serve up to a crowd.

How far in advance can I make this?

I would honestly make this right before serving for the best taste and freshness.

Add 2-3 tbsp. of sprinkles to a shallow saucer.

Use a butter knife to add a thin layer of frosting to the rim of your glass, about ¼ inch thick. Dip the frosting rim into the sprinkles.

Fill your glass halfway with ice.

Add 1 oz. vodka, 2 oz. half and half, ½ oz. Kahlua, and finish with 1-2 oz. gingerbread simple syrup.

Give the drink a gentle stir.

Serve and Enjoy!

How would you make for a crowd?

Hi Tammy, since this recipe is for 1 drink, you could just multiply it but the number of people you think are attending and then put it into a large punch bowl. You could then just pre-make the cups with the frosting and sprinkles so people could fill up their own glasses.
