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's to my husband for keeping an eye out for more fun and yummy cocktails!
