I for one, LOVE them so I really wanted to try something new and fun!
So please feel free to check out the recipe at the bottom of this page to make the most delicious Gingerbread Martini ever!
After trying Five Farms Irish Cream, I knew I had to make the Gingerbread Martini with their delicious liqueur.
Five Farms is exclusively sourced (and produced) in Ireland. Country Cork, Ireland to be exact.
Five family-owned farms source the cream and when combined with premium Irish Whiskey, it creates this amazing flavor of butterscotch, vanilla bean, caramel blend. A great adult dessert if I may say so myself.
Sip on it or make it into a cocktail, either way… it’s one you can’t pass up!
Now… onto this perfect holiday gift guide on how to make a Gingerbread Martini Gift Basket!

What You Need to Make A Gingerbread Martini Holiday Gift Basket
First and foremost, you need to get these cute martini glasses.
I got mine from Home Goods but you can get the same ones from Amazon!
Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur
This is the most important part of this whole basket! The delicious Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur!
This liqueur helps blend all the flavors together making it really flavorful!
I loved using this as part of the recipe. Especially this particular caramel sauce.
It’s a fav… don’t ask why, I just love it.
Adding some caramel swirls to the glass really made it pop too!
Gingerbread Cookie Cutters
Gingerbread cookie cutters are fun for both adults and kiddos so it’s a fun touch to this gift basket.
You can make your own cookies for this drink or use the cookie cutters to make Christmas cookies with your kids.
It’s a win-win.
I got these little guys at Target but like I said above, you can definitely make your own to put on the drink.
They add the cutest little touch to the Gingerbread Martini!
A good cocktail shaker is an essential item to add to the Gingerbread Martini Holiday Gif Basket!
When you read the directions below, you’ll see it’s a key item to really blend the flavors together.
I have one similar to the one below.
This is another alcohol we add to the Gingerbread Martini!
Shop for one at your local Liquor store!
You can either make or purchase gingerbread spice.
I made mine by combining:
- 2 tbsp. allspice
- 2 tbsp. cinamon
- 2 tbsp. ginger
- 1 tbsp. clove
- 1 tbsp. nutmeg
But if you don’t have all those ingredients, you can always purchase them below!
But of course, you need a cute basket to put all your ingredients in!
I got one from a friend but this cute one from Amazon will do!

Place martini glasses in freezer to chill while making this cocktail
Prep a plate with 2 tbsp. gingerbread spice and sugar for the rim of the martini glass (mix well) then set aside
Warm the caramel in the microwave for about 15 seconds
Combine the caramel sauce, 1/2 tbsp gingerbread spice and ginger in a small bowl
Get the cocktail shaker ready by placing ice cubes, Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur, Vodka, and the caramel sauce in it
Secure the lid and shake well to combine
Take the martini glasses out of the freezer and dip into the gingerbread spice/sugar mix to create the yummy rim
Add some extra caramel by swirling it around the glass.
Pour the cocktail into chilled martini glasses
Place gingerbread cookie on top the martini glass to complete the look!
