Am I the only one who thinks there’s something inherently festive about chickens destroying gingerbread people? Just me? Okeeeeeee. I can live with that.

This drink is a holiday twist on the Ramos Fizz…that beautiful, tricky, foamy egg white cocktail that I am sworn frenemies with. I love them, but I struggle to make them. So I keep making them because I ain’t no quitter. I SHALL PERSEVERE!!!!

  • 1 parts Gingerbread simple syrup (see below)

  • 5 parts Melted vanilla bean ice cream

    To make the GINgerbread Man Fizz:

    Combine gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, ice cream, and egg white in a shaker with no ice. Shake thoroughly and aggressively for at least 20 seconds. Add ice and shake until chilled and frosty.
