We go crazy over pumpkin spice in the Fall, how bout we give gingerbread spice the same treatment this winter?
The good people over at Southern Comfort have got this one covered. Their seasonal Gingerbread Spice spin on their original SoCo is the perfect complement for your holiday cocktails.
As a bartender, here’s how I think you should mix ’em up:
1. Gingerbread Mule
The best thing about moscow mules is how versatile they are. The ingredients are simple, and can be altered based on your alcohol of choice. If you’re looking to add SoCo Gingerbread into the mix, here’s what you’ll need:
Fill copper mug with ice
Add a shot (or more, if you prefer) of Soco Gingerbread Spice
Fill almost to brim with ginger beer
Add squirt of lime juice
2. Gingerbread Spiced Spiked Hot Chocolate
Whip up some microwaved hot cocoa mix as you normally would
Add as much gingerbread spice as you’d like!
BONUS: add Rum Chata for a creamier, stronger base
3. Gingerbread Toast Crunch Shot
Pour equal part SoCo Gingerbread over ice in glass or shaker
Add equal part Rum Chata and cover with another glass, shake quickly
Using top glass, strain liquid over shot glasses, avoiding ice chunks
