Gingerbread Coffee Cake Cocktail

Day 307



Gingerbread Coffee Cake Cocktail
4 shots out of 5

One of my very best friends is coming over tonight to watch our kids while my husband and I go out on a dinner and movie date!  We are soooo excited!  Nights like tonight are very rare and come once in a blue moon.  Thank You from the bottom of our hearts Veronica, we appreciate this more then you know!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  My husband actually found this recipe at the end of a talk show while flicking through channels.  He said it looked good, so I found the recipe online at the cbs website and thought I'd give it a try.  I did not have two of the four ingredients for this cocktail (odd being The Cocktail Lady and all).  Apparently there's a Bailey's Hazelnut liqueur (instead I'm mixing 1/2 Baileys and 1/2 Frangelico) which I don't have as well as Captain Morgan's Black Spiced Rum (I only have the regular spiced rum).  None the less I decided to go for it.  All in all, this is a pretty good cocktail.  The coffee flavor kicks in at the end, which I thought was a nice touch.  Thank you Sandra Lee for you cocktail this evening......or my slightly amended version of it.

Here is my ameded version of the Gingerbread Coffee Cake Cocktail:

  • 1 oz coffee
  • 1/2 oz baileys
  • 1/2 oz hazelnut liqueur
  • 1/2 oz spiced rum
  • 1/2 oz cake vodka
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Here is a photo of the end result:
