Ingredients

  • 1 Ounce tequila
  • 1/2 Ounce triple sec
  • 3 Ounces apple cider
  • 1/4 Ounce lime juice
  • 1/4 Ounce gingerbread syrup
  • Gingersnap cookies to garnish

Directions

For the garnish, use ginger snap cookies cut from the center to the edge so they can be slipped over the rim of the glass or ground gingerbread crumbs. If using the crumbs, rub a lime slice around the mouth of the glass. Press the mouth of the glass into a plate filled with gingerbread crumbs to coat.
(If using the whole cookies as garnish, as pictured, garnish after the glass is filled.) 

Stir the liquid ingredients together and pour over ice in a tall glass, or shake the ingredients with ice and pour in a traditional margarita glass.

Gingerbread Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Gingerbread Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
