The 12 Days of Speakeasy: Day 12

“Ho, ho, the mistletoe, hung where you can see. Somebody waits for you, kiss her once for me.”
With the hot sun safely tucked below the northern hemisphere, Christmas time is the hour of the Ginger. Only now will your favorite redhead begin shedding her habitual layers of SPF. Like most Gingers one might find under the mistletoe, this holiday cocktail is a little tart and a slightly sweet. So pucker up buttercup, or someone else may slide in and steal your Ginger Kiss. Cheers!

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love poured for me a:

Ginger Kiss

6 ounces Speakeasy vodka
The juice of 1 lemon
A 1 inch piece of ginger root, thinly sliced
½ ounce simple syrup
Splash of water – fizzy or flat

Add all of the ingredients into a large shaker with ice.  Shake it like a Polaroid picture. Strain and serve up. Makes 2 doses of mistletoe kiss potion  (serves 2.)
