An I had but one penny in the world, thou shouldst have it to buy ginger-bread...

~ William Shakespeare, Love’s Labour’s Lost
IMG_2232_20-12-18_Broken_Clock_Lingering_Vodka_Ginger-Me.jpg Gingerbread has been one of the quintessential tastes of an English Christmas since before the Elizabethan times, with Shakespeare and the Queen herself said to be rather partial to this sweet, spicy treat.

Elizabeth would have her kitchen bake gingerbread men and decorate them with likenesses of courtiers, suiters and visiting dignitaries, complete with gold leaf detailing.

And it’s said that during feasts she took great pleasure in biting their heads and limbs off in front of her esteemed guests.

This gingerbread inspired cocktail would be an ideal tipple for such a festive royal feast.

INGREDIENTS:

40 ml Broken Clock Vodka
10 ml Amaretto
10 ml Gingerbread Syrup
25 ml Cream
15 ml Whole Milk

Garnish:
Mini Gingerbread Man
Pinch of Cinnamon and Nutmeg

METHOD:

Combine the ingredients in a well iced Boston Shaker and shake vigorously until very cold and frothy.

Strain into a glass with one large ice cube in it using a Hawthrone Strainer.

Add the gingerbread man to the top and dust the cocktail with a little cinnamon and nutmeg.
