Ginger liqueur
Crushed gingersnaps
2 tablespoons ginger liqueur
2 tablespoons vanilla-citrus liqueur
1 1/2 tablespoons coffee-flavored rum
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons whipping cream
1 cup ice cubes
Garnish: partially split vanilla bean brushed with liqueur and rolled in sugar (optional)


Dip glass rims in ginger liqueur and crushed gingersnaps. Store glasses in freezer up to 2 days.

Stir together 2 Tbsp. ginger liqueur, vanilla-citrus liqueur, coffee-flavored rum, honey, and whipping cream in a cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes; cover with lid, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled (about 30 seconds). Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish, if desired.

Note: We tested with Brinley Gold Coffee Rum, Tuaca Vanilla Citrus Liqueur, and Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur.
