This Thanksgiving we will be hosting my husband’s family, and I have to say I’m really looking forward to it! Because all of us live in various parts of the country, this will be our chance to not only celebrate Thanksgiving, but also Christmas together! My son is really looking forward to seeing his grandma, aunt and uncles. With so many of us all under one roof, having ample drinks ready to go is essential! My Ginger Snap Cocktail will be the perfect libation to celebrate the holidays with family!
Made with Canada Dry TEN® (full flavor, only 10 calories), this creamy, sparkling cocktail has all the flavors of the holidays in one delicious glass.

Making this fantastic Ginger Snap Cocktail is simple, and one that you can enjoy anytime the mood strikes. To make this cocktail, you’ll need a cocktail shaker – if you don’t have one, no worries. Using a simple mason jar with a tight-fitting lid works just as well. To your cocktail shaker or jar, add your Canada Dry TEN®, the spiced rum, cream liqueur, and half and half. Shake to combine, and then pour into glasses. To add a pretty garnish to the glasses, I rimmed them with a bit of honey, and crushed gingersnap cookie crumbs. Lastly, I added a sprinkle of ground cloves to the top of the drink, which is an excellent addition to this cocktail that compliments the flavors wonderfully!
Here’s how this easy, delicious holiday cocktail comes together:
- 4 oz. (½ cup) Canada Dry TEN® Ginger Ale
- 1 oz. (1 shot) Spiced Rum
- 1 oz. (1 shot) Cream Liqueur
- 1 oz. (1 shot) half and half
- pinch of cloves
- honey and crushed gingersnap cookie crumbs for garnish
- In martini glasses or other preferred cocktail glass, line the rims with honey, and crushed gingersnap cookie crumbs. (If desired)
- In cocktail shaker or mason jar with ice, add the Canada Dry TEN® Ginger Ale, spiced rum, cream liqueur, and half and half. Shake vigorously to combine. Pour into prepared martini glasses. Enjoy right away.
As we enter the holiday season, I hope you’re able to enjoy time with friends and family. Make sure to have a delicious cocktail ready to get the party started. Cheers! ~Erin
