Smoked Gingerbread Old Fashioned

Table of Contents

Oh snap! A Christmas cocktail just for you! Did you ever make a gingerbread house growing up? I actually don’t think I have ever made a real gingerbread house! How strange! This drink pairs perfectly with making them, though! So grab those kits from Trader Joes and get to building!!

This drink has the classic sweet flavors of an Old Fashioned, mixed with the spicy flavors of gingerbread cookies. I bet it would even taste good with an icing rim…and crumbled gingerbread…oh goodness!
