It’s like drinking a Gingerbread Man! We use this syrup in our Gingerbread Martini, Gingerbread Man-Hattan, Gingerbread Alexander, and Kentucky Gingerbread Man. So if you love eating off the head and limbs of gingerbread men, then make some of this syrup, and mix up some of these amazing cocktails to go along with the carnage.
