Dipping freshly-baked holiday cookies in a cold glass of milk is tasty and all, but this year I just might be using Trader Joe's Gingerbread Cream Liqueur for all my dessert-dunking needs. A brand-new release this year, the seasonal sip combines dairy cream with vodka, gingerbread spices, and sugar to create a boozy beverage with a whopping 14.75 percent ABV. Need we say more?
According to the back of each 750-milliliter bottle, the festive drink is "mild-bodied" and tastes "pleasantly sweet." Trader Joe's suggests serving it over ice and with a dash of nutmeg or cinnamon on top, but we could also see it tasting excellent mixed into coffee or hot chocolate (or maybe even in slushy form?). TJ's Gingerbread Cream Liqueur costs $8 a bottle and can be found on shelves at locations that sell alcohol alongside the grocery chain's fan-favourite Eggnog Liqueur and Cocoa Cream Liqueur. We'll cheers to that!
