Friends in Copenhagen brought this over in a mason jar, on their bikes.
2 oz vodka
½ oz gingerbread syrup
Combine in shaker over ice, and strain into cocktail glass.
To make the syrup, simmer for ten minutes a cup of water, two cinnamon sticks, a teaspoon of whole cloves, and 4-5 tablespoons of chopped fresh ginger. Add one cup of sugar, and stir until dissolved. Remove from the heat and strain.
