Gingerbread syrup for cocktails & desserts
This gingerbread syrup is perfect for holiday cocktails and treats! It would be great poured on pancakes, ice cream, and other desserts but it really shines in a cocktail! I recently added it to this Gingerbread Ramos Gin Fizz but it also works fabulously in warm drinks like this spiked Gingerbread Latte I tastes like a gingerbread cookie, but better because I find gingerbread a tad to dry for my taste, so this syrup is arguably even better.
What’s in the Gingerbread syrup?
ginger bread recipes can vary but typically have ginger, cloves, and cinnamon. I love adding nutmeg to anything this time of year so I put it in the syrup too!
- brown sugar
- fresh ginger- fresh is none negotiable
- molasses- this is optional but gives ht syrup a deeper flavor.
