Gingerbread Cookie Cocktail

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.
