hansel und gretel

Here's a little cocktail I whipped up in Tim & Heather's honor to serve at their wedding reception. I wanted to do something with vanilla vodka and gingerbread syrup - two things that Tim quite likes in his cocktails. They turned out to be a big hit with Tim, and with many of the guests!

Kudos to Aimee, who helped me with the name. The key is in the garnish...

Proportions:
2.5 parts Stoli Vanil
0.5 part Monin Gingerbread Syrup
2.0 parts Pellegrino
Freshly squeezed lemon juice - about a half a large lemon per glass. Definitely taste and adjust.

Mix and serve over crushed ice in your choice of vessel. For Heather & Tim's wedding, I served these in wine goblets. For a smaller party, I might use pilsner glasses.

Garnish with a lemon wedge for a Hansel, and with a cherry for a Gretel.

This recipe lends itself well to mixing up a pitcher, and pouring through the evening.
