Gingerbread Martini

We're kicking off the series of Bond/ dessert themed Martinis with inspiration from the first James Bond film, Dr No. It was released in 1962 and our hero is sent to Jamaica to investigate the death of a fellow British agent. It happens to star my favourite Bond - Sean Connery. Who's your favourite Bond?

I wanted to make something with some spice in it and started thinking about Jamaican Gingercake. There's also coffee and cinnamon in this too. As these have cream in them I reckon you could also get away with serving them as a dessert, maybe with some little ginger biscuits to dip in. All the Martinis this week will be vodka based and of course will be shaken not stirred!

Gingerbread Martini
Serves 1

2 shots of vodka
1 shot of kahlua
1 shot of gingerbread syrup
1 shot of soya cream

Shake all the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a martini glass and top with cinammon.

I'll leave you with the original trailer. The new films may be chock full of special effects but this still manages to look exciting and glamorous.


  1. Yum - this sounds absolutely delightful - especially after a long week!

  2. I watched Dr. No last week, Connery's my favourite bond too!

  3. Connery is my favorite bond. Can't go wrong with him as far as I'm concerned.

  4. I don't have a fave Bond, I never used to watch the movies as a kid because that Jaws guy scared me as did being dumped into that trap door with the sharks, ha!

    But I really, really want this drink. I just need to find some ginger syrup!

  5. Oh I need to find gingerbread syrup, and then smuggle these in to the theater to see my favorite Bond, Daniel Craig, when Skyfall premieres.

  6. I could definitely cope with one of those right now. Connery used to be my favourite Bond, but I'm being increasingly won over by Craig - is that sacrilege?!
