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.

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!
