Recipe: Neptune's Cameron McGeachin's Gingerbread Old Fashioned

You could blend your leftover gingerbread house bits with some booze, or you could make Melbourne restaurant Neptune's Gingerbread cocktail. It's beyond festive, and a perfect special to add to the menu at any time of year.

Gingerbread Old Fashioned

● 30ml spiced rum
● 15ml cognac
● 10ml coffee liqueur
● 10ml Pedro Ximénez
● 10ml maple syrup
