Uncomfortable holiday question: Are gingerbread people’s bodies made of the house, or is a gingerbread house actually built with cookie-person skin? Ugh, we need a drink to solve this one. Thankfully, Vinaigrette’s popular booze-fueled gingerbread house making event, GingerBooze, is returning in to-go form for 2020. The $45 GingerBooze kits feature everything architects need to construct their gingerbread house at home, including candy decorations from South Congress sweet store Big Top Candy Shop and two jars of house-made booze (choose between mulled cider with bourbon or Vinaigrette’s famously potent eggnog). For customers simply looking to decorate (or party), individual gingerbread house kits and “Hold the House” cocktail packages are available for $20 and $25, respectively. All kit pre-orders must be placed online by 5 pm. on Thursday, December 17, for in-person pick up Saturday, December 19. Additionally, kit delivery options are available for orders placed within three miles of Vinaigrette's location at 2201 College Ave.
