Taste of the holidays: Review of Granny's Gingerbread Cream + recipes

Updated on October 10, 2016

Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas and New Year's Eve will all be upon us sooner than we think. We'll be invited to dinners and house parties. We may even host a few get-togethers ourselves, including surprise drop-in and impromptu guests. We want to have something on hand that's affordable -- especially in multiples -- seasonal, fun and unexpected. For the adults out there, how about a nice, creamy liqueur? For this time of year, Sazerac product Granny's Gingerbread Cream really hits the spot. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!

I experienced a nose of sugar cookies, a touch of gingerbread, vanilla, a hint of spice, cream and buttery notes.

As for taste, I noticed spice, ginger, cinnamon, heat, plus rich cream and butter notes. It's sweet, but not cloyingly so. There's a bitter almond aftertaste, adding sophistication to a dessert liqueur.

It has a light latte color with opaque, medium to light bodied fluid.

Sazerac describes Granny's Gingerbread Cream like this: "gingerbread spice and brown sugar notes . . . made with natural vanilla flavor and heavy creams sourced from Vermont dairies." Rich and delicious!

Here are some easy, delectable recipes using it:
