Ginger Gem

A little ginger something for a festive toast during our Christmas tree lighting 'ceremony' tonight.
1 ½ parts spiced rum
½ part Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur
¼ part cinnamon schnapps
1 tsp molasses
Ginger ale/ginger beer
Candied ginger to garnish (or if you’re like us and don’t have any to hand a lemon twist works just as well.)
Shake first three ingredients with ice in cocktail shaker and pour into glass which has had the molasses twirled around the inside. Top off with ginger ale/beer and enjoy.

The molasses might need a little stirring towards the end and it really does give it a nice flavor. You can see the twirl so much better when I tried this with the citrus vodka. Himself approves of this ‘hobby’ of mine because of the trial and error involved. Nothing seems to go to waste around here compared to say, my sewing 'hobby'.
