You know some things I'm a total sucker for?  Great holiday cocktails.

Kahlua.

And the fabulous flavors of gingerbread.

Which means I have absolutely zero restraint when it comes to this Gingerbread White Russian.  Because this fun and festive Christmas cocktail beautifully combines all three of these things.

This cocktail takes the classic White Russian combination of Kahlua, vodka, and cream and jazzes it up with traditional gingerbread spices to create one totally tasty cocktail perfect for the holidays.

 How to Make a Gingerbread White Russian image

With it's great Christmas-spice flavor from ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, not only does this Gingerbread White Russian taste fabulous ... it's really easy to make, too.

Start by placing some vanilla vodka in a cocktail glass.  A traditional White Russian uses regular vodka, but vanilla vodka brings an extra hint of sweetness to this gingerbread version.  Then stir the spices ... cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves ... into the vodka until well combined.  Adding the spices with the vodka helps them more readily combine into the finished cocktail than if they're stirred in at the very end.

Next stir in a good dose of Kahlua and a little cream, and top it off with a few ice cubes.

See? ... easy.

Garnish each cocktail with a cinnamon stick or, for an extra dash of holiday spirit, a mini gingerbread cookie.

My Gingerbread Cookie Bites are just the perfect little cuties for the job!  They look adorable sitting atop the cocktails, and are a tasty little bonus cookie bite, too.

  1. All of these drinks look so enticing and beautiful....but how about coming up with non alcoholic versions for those of us who do not drink...none of my family or relatives drink and I would really like some non alcoholic recipes.
    Enjoy your site.

  2. This looks like a great drink. I love White Russians to begin with and putting a gingerbread spin on it is a fun way to spruce up the classic!
