I like a good cocktail during the holiday season. I even love a tasty shooter — that’s 2-3 ounces of mixed beverage, kinda like a big shot.
And, there’s no adult beverage that screams “Christmas” like Fireball Whiskey! It adds that tasty bit of cinnamon to so many different beverages.
One of my FAVORITE drinks to have at my Christmas get togethers are these Sweet Cinnamon Stick Christmas Shooters. I make them ahead of time, and have them waiting on a table for people to just walk by and pick up.
They are always hella popular, and just about everyone that tries one asks for the recipe.
Well, guess what — I’m here to share the recipe with YOU!
Here’s how to make the Sweet Cinnamon Stick Christmas Shooter
1 Ounce Fireball Whiskey
1 Ounce Cranberry Juice
1/2 – 1 Ounce Cream Soda
Whipped Cream (Optional Topping)
Red Hot Candies (Optional Topping)
Pour 1 Ounce of Fireball Whiskey into a tall shooter or low ball glass.
Add 1 Ounce of Cranberry Juice to the Fireball.
Add 1/2 to 1 Ounce of Cream Soda (depending on how much room is left in your glass) to the Fireball and Cranberry juice mixture.
For a bit of extra Christmas Cheer, you can top the shooter with a swirl of Whipped Cream and a few Red Hot Candies.
That’s it. This couldn’t be easier!
To tell you the truth, I eyeball the entire drink. I fill the glass 1/3 with Fireball, a 1/3 of Cranberry Juice, and then I fill the glass with Cream Soda.
OMG. It’s so good!!
You want to be careful. These go down a little bit TOO easily. You can go from Christmas Cheer to Tipsy Tinsel in the matter of a few shooters.
