What I Love: Gingerbread Cookie Cocktail

Hey Dolls!
I absouletly adore gingerbread.
So here is a recipe for a "Gingerbread Cookie Cocktail".
Sounds yummy right? :)
Well you can also minus the alcohol ingredients in it and it still tastes amazing. That is the way I actually only drink it! :) I add Almond Milk/Coconut Milk instead of the Vodka, and instead of Chocolate liqueur I add a touch of chocolate shavings. :)
