  1. Make the gingerbread vodka 1-2 months in advance. If you leave the vodka to infuse for longer than 4 days (step 1), the spice flavours will become stronger.

  1. I made this last November and was lovely then, however I left lots complete with ingredients in the large kinder jar until about a month ago, I put some in a hip flask and took it hunting, it was passed around and went down a storm. I now have orders for it..! It was” Delicious”

  2. This is a really nice drink that would make a great Digestif with the Ginger in it. Very warming and not too sweet. I think I may pour it over a little cinnamon sugar to up the cinnamon flavour for when I have a sweet sticky moment!! Lovely.
