Gingerbread Toddy

DIY Cocktails and I made a new fall cocktail. It’s a twist on the Hot Toddy called the Gingerbread Toddy.

First we made gingerbread syrup and then we mixed it in with bourbon, hot water, and a little bit of lemon. The result is cozy drink that’s perfect for sipping in front of a roaring fire. And yes, it tastes just like gingerbread.

The syrup took only a few minutes to make and would be great in other things too. I’m going to use a bit tomorrow morning when I’m making coffee and try out my own Gingerbread Latte.

Gingerbread Toddy

Ingredients:

    2 ounces bourbon
    1 ounce syrup
    1/3-1/2 cup hot water
    A squeeze of lemon

For The Gingerbread Syrup:

    1 cup dark brown sugar
    1 cup water
    1 Tablespoon molasses
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon allspice

Directions:

To Make The Syrup: Combine all the syrup ingredients in a pan. Heat to boiling on a stovetop while whisking until all the powdery substances dissolve. Boil for 2-3 minutes so that the syrup thickens slightly.

To Make The Gingerbread Toddy: Combine bourbon and syrup in a mug. Fill to the top with hot water. Add a few drops of lemon juice and stir. Enjoy!
