#ThirstyThursday: Holiday Ginger Sweets with Cocktails

Kicking off this holiday season, here are a few of our favorite festive cocktails and sweet treats. Let us help you win your office holiday party or cookie exchange with these new cocktail and cookie inspirations.

A Vanilla Dark ‘N’ Stormy is our spin on the famous drink. Gosling’s Black Seal, a dark rum, topped with ginger beer in a highball glass is the official prescription, but we did ours in a cocktail glass with vanilla bean. But don’t tell Gosling’s please—they are serious (read: litigious) about preserving the brand. So don’t go substituting a different rum as it directly violates the official, certified recipe.


Cookie exchange parties are always fun—but this year, instead of going with the typical chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin, I set out to find the best gingerbread cookie recipe to share with my friends. I found many options to accommodate restrictive diets, such as, gluten-free, low-carb, and sugar-free. My favorite recipe can be found on our Holiday Treats Pinterest board. With so many to choose from, I couldn’t just pick one.

They are all winners in my book. Take a chance and bake some cookies.


There are many alternatives to serving sugar-laden soft drinks this season. We love this healthy Horchata recipe, and this recipe for spiked Horchata adds a holiday touch to share with your cookie exchange.
