How do I make a ginger snap cocktail?

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 you can also use a mason jar with a tight fitting lid. 

To your cocktail shaker or jar, add ice, Canada Dry TEN®, the spiced rum, cream liqueur, and half and half.  Shake to combine, and then pour into glasses.  

How do I garnish this ginger snap cocktail?

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!

  1. What a gorgeous drink, Erin! Gingersnaps are one of my all-time favorite cookies, so of course I would like a cocktail inspired by gingersnaps. I can't wait to try this one during the holidays this year! #client

  7. I've never heard of that flavor for a drink before - that sounds yummy!! Pinned it!
  8. I love the idea of this, but wouldn't shaking the ginger ale vigorously cause a fizzy explosion? I really want to try this because I have all the ingredients. Can the mixture be stirred to avoid this?
  9. Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party!
  10. Such a unique cocktail! I bet they taste as good as they look! Definitely going to have to try this out this weekend! Found you on the Inspiration Monday link up :)
