I know it looks like the TGIF cocktail series has ended, but I thought I’d bring it back for a spin on a classic – the DIY Gingerbread Vodka Moscow Mule. This is no normal cocktail though, I made the gingerbread vodka, decked-out the decanter, and then got a chance to sample the bevies once they were made. This Gingerbread Vodka Moscow Mule looks (and tastes) SO good that you’ll be making a list and checking it twice (a grocery list that is) before the post is up.

- 1/2 fresh ginger, finely chopped (no need to peel)

- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 10 nutmeg cloves
- 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways
- 2 oz. of golden syrup

*My recipe is based on this one // here // but I’ve made a few substitutions.
Step 1: Peel and then dice the ginger, split the vanilla pod, and cut the crystalized ginger.
Step 2: Partition everything into one or two large mason jars. Add the nutmeg cloves.
Step 3: Add 1 oz. of golden syrup to each mason jar, or 2 oz. if you’re just using one jar.
Step 4: Add the vodka, seal the mason jars, and then leave them for about 4 days in a cool and dark place.
