Cocktail of the Week: Gingersnap

Here's a bracing cocktail that puts many of the flavors of pumpkin pie in a glass.  It's wonderfully refreshing...and if you love it, why not repeat it at Christmas time?  After all, it has the flavors of a gingerbread man also.

Makes one cocktail.
From Rachael Ray.

1 ounce ginger liqueur (i.e. Domaine de Canton)
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon agave syrup (or 1 tablespoon simple syrup)
1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Pinch each of ground clove, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake well.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
