** Make sure to add (finely)crushed graham crackers to your martini glass BEFORE pouring your martini. To do this you will wet the rim with the glass with the gingerbread syrup or event water and dip the rim of the martini glass into the crushed graham cracker mixture spread out on a plate!

Want a stronger drink? Increase the amounts of vanilla vodka and coffee liquor to your liking.

What to make this non-alcoholic? Replace the vanilla vodka with vanilla cream soda or your favorite vanilla flavored syrup. Omit the coffee liquor completely and increase the amount of heavy whipping cream you use for a creamier texture.

Want to make this a bit dairy-free? Substitute heavy whipping cream for your favorite non-dairy alternative. This can be coconut milk, almond milk or oat milk. And be sure to use a dairy free whipped topping like almond milk whipped cream if you want the whipped cream garnish.

Prep Time 2 minutes

Total Time 8 minutes
Course cocktails, Drinks


  • 2 oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 oz Coffee Liquor (I like to use Kahlua)
  • 1 oz Gingerbread Syrup
  • 1 oz Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Ice Cubes
  • Crushed Graham Crackers (used for rimming the glass)
  • Ground Cinnamon (for garnish)
  • Gingerbread Cookie (optional for garnish)
  • Candy Canes (optional for garnish)


  • Begin by rimming a martini glass with crushed graham crackers. To do this, spread a thin layer of the gingerbread syrup on a small plate, and another small layer of the crushed graham crackers on another plate. Dip the rim of the martini glass into the syrup, allowing any excess to drip off, and then dip it into the crushed graham crackers to coat the rim. Set the glass aside.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  • Pour the vanilla vodka, coffee liqueur, gingerbread syrup, and heavy cream into the cocktail shaker.
  • Secure the lid on the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds until well-chilled.
  • Strain the mixture into the prepared martini glass, being careful not to disturb the graham cracker rim.
  • Sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon on top of the cocktail for extra flavor and a festive touch.
  • Garnish the gingerbread Martini with a small gingerbread cookie on the rim or floating in the drink for added flair.
  • Serve your Gingerbread Martini immediately and enjoy!
