Gingerbread Syrup

  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • teaspoon ground cloves


  • 2 oz Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1 ½ oz vodka
  • 1 ½ oz gingerbread syrup
  • 1 oz heavy cream
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • crushed gingerbread cookies for garnish
  • whipped cream (optional)


  • Heat the water, sugar, molasses, ginger, cinnamon and cloves in small saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.
  • Mix Baileys, vodka, gingerbread syrup, heavy cream, vanilla extract and some ice cubes in martini shaker. Shake for 20 seconds and strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with some whipped cream and crushed gingerbread cookies.


  • Place the martini glass in the freezer for an hour so it keeps your martini chilled.
  • You can substitute heavy cream with half-and-half or whole milk.
  • If you want even more vanilla flavor, increase the vanilla extract to ½ tsp.
  • If you don't make or have gingerbread cookies, try gingersnap or Biscoff cookies.
