Day 7: The Twelve Days of Christmas Cocktails

On The Seventh Day Of Christmas...

This Gingerbread Cookie Cocktail is not for wussies.  Although it may actually taste like a cookie, don't be fooled by its yummy sweetness and cute name.  I made this cocktail for the first time a few years ago for some co-workers who couldn't stop raving about it and how wonderfully delicious it was.  Since then it has become a part of my holiday tradition and has definitely spread some good cheer!

1-1/2 ounces Stoli Vanilla Vodka
1-1/2 ounces Frangelico Liqueur
3/4 ounce Butterscotch Schnapps
4 ounces ginger beer (I prefer Reeds Extra Ginger Brew which is a bit spicier)
Myer's Rum Original Dark for float

Mix the Stoli Vanilla Vodka, Frangelico Liqueur, and Butterscotch Schnapps in a mixing glass.  Pour the mix in to a tall glass filled with ice.  Add the ginger beer and carefully float with Myer's Dark Rum.  Drink this cocktail in layers or use a festive straw to stir and mix the flavors together.  Cheers!
