Gingerbread

Gingerbread cocktail with bourbon, butterscotch liqueur, ginger wine, and apple juice

The Gingerbread is one of our favorite entries in a collection of pastry-flavored cocktails from none other than Simon Difford, mixology legend and curator of the inimitable Difford’s Guide. In this series of drinks, Difford uses a bit of butterscotch liqueur to impart a warm, buttery sweetness that truly reminds one of the pastries they imitate.

That clever trick is used to best effect here in the Gingerbread, which combines the butterscotch with bourbon, ginger wine, and apple juice for a spicy little cookie of a cocktail. Delicious!
