TGIF with a Gingersnap Martini
The colors of fall just keep getting more spectacular as the last week of September comes to an end. This Gingersnap Martini delivers the flavor of the autumn season, and is the perfect way to wind down from the hectic work week behind you. Definitely not your grandmothers cookies either, this tasty little devil packs a punch, and will certainly start your weekend off on a “sweet” note.

- ½ oz. Disaronno
- ½ oz. simple syrup
- ½ oz. molasses
- 2 to 3 slices fresh ginger

In the bottom of a cocktail shaker place the ginger, molasses, simple syrup and spices; muddle well.
