T’was the Cocktail Series Before Christmas: Night 5 of 12 – The Gingerbread Man

Okay, so after hitting you with a Snowball yesterday, now seems like a good time for us to channel a certain elusive young fella with a bit of spice dusting his buttons, and run for the hills before you can return fire. Tonight’s cocktail, The Gingerbread Man is a drinkable holiday take on the ever-popular Moscow Mule, so ginger flavors abound, as do cherry, lime, and pomegranate, with a healthy dose of vodka edging every sip.
