Finally, pour the drink into your martini glasses before garnishing each one with a cinnamon stick. It’s the perfect concoction to share with friends when you’re waiting for Santa to arrive.

This cocktail call for 1 ounce of ginger beer, 1 teaspoon of ginger juice, 1-1/2 ounces of dark rum, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon schnapps, ground cloves, 1 egg white, cinnamon sticks, ginger squares and a ground-up gingerbread cookie.

Next combine the ginger juice, rum and cinnamon schnapps in a shaker with ice before adding a pinch of ground cloves as well as an egg white. Shake for about 30 seconds and then pour it into your glass slowly as it foams and offers all the goodness of a gingerbread cookie in drink form.
