Thirsty Thursday is now a little delayed.

I was looking for the PERFECT Thanksgiving cocktail after 2 weeks on the road – ack!  Apple martini?  Heck, no!  I wanted something fall-like and wonderful for the holiday.  I wanted herbs and muddles and not too many gimmicks, something sophisticated that one would actually want to drink.  Hereby, I give you…The GINGER SPICE (no relation to a Spice Girl).

Get your shaker ready

Clean ice cubes

Here we go!

Ginger Spice

  • 1 ounce spiced rum (I prefer Mt. Gay)
  • 1/2 ounce ginger liqueur
  • 1 ounce fresh-press apple juice (or organic if you can, or even cider, but cold!)
  • Cinnamon stick

Rim a martini or even Collins glass with cinnamon-infused sugar.  It’s just exactly what it sounds like.  Shake ingredients together and strain into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with the shaken cinnamon stick and a sprinkle of nutmeg, done on a microplane grater.  Not cloying, not too sweet, just perfect!
