Dairy-Free Gingerbread Martini

Holiday parties call for sparkly dresses {or ugly sweaters!}, winter wonderlands, delicious food and festive cocktails!  This Dairy-Free Gingerbread Martini is perfect to cheers the season and is simple to make with just some spices, almond milk, a natural sweetener and a splash of vodka.  And a bonus…it’s healthier than most sugary holiday cocktails but is just as, if not more, delicious!

You can also skip the vodka for a gingerbread mocktail.  Or another amazingly tasty way to use this gingerbread mix {minus the vodka} is to add it to your coffee to make a homemade gingerbread latte!

Yield: 2 martinis

1 cup unsweetened almond milk  {I highly recommend MALK unsweetened almond milk!}
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
½ tsp vanilla
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ground ginger
1 oz. vodka
