Gingerbread Martinis (Without the Guilt)

clean cocktails, healthy, drinks, christmas, party, festive, holidays, gingerbread, cocktails, clean eating, low calorie, nutrition, rum chata, cinnamon, cookies, delicious, treats, merry, Give me a gingerbread cookie and I'm a happy momma.  Give me a gingerbread cookie I can drink, one for adults, a little something to sip at a holiday party or while wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve, and I'm happier than my kids on Christmas morning!  We had our own little Christmas party this weekend and I'm happy to say I put my previous bartending experience to good use and whipped up some delicious concoctions that are easier on the waistline and cleaned up a bit too.  I'm looking forward to another one of these on Christmas Eve, snuggled up in warm blankets, Christmas slippers on, and watching It's a Wonderful Life- our Christmas tradition.  I hope you enjoy these as much as we did this past weekend!  And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!


Vanilla Vodka (I used Smirnoff)
Rum Chata 
Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk
Gingerbread cookies, crumbled


In a large shaker, add several ice cubes, one shot of vanilla vodka, one shot of Rum Chata, and 1 cup of vanilla almond milk.  
Shake in a dash of cinnamon and a dash of ginger. 
Crumble gingerbread cookies onto a plate, moisten the rim of a cocktail glass or martini glass and dip the rim in the cookies.  
Shake shaker until frost forms on the outside (about 15-30 seconds)
Strain into glasses.  Sip and enjoy!
