Fireball Hot Toddie: Who doesn’t love the cinnamon flavor and add a little warm heat and you will for sure have sugarplums dancing in your head. Straddling the line between a hot cider and a Hot Toddy, the Fireball Toddy swaps the usual lemon juice out for apple cider to better complement the cinnamon flavor of the whisky and give the cocktail a more holiday splash.
Hot Water – 4 oz.
Fireball – 2 oz.
Apple Cider – .5oz.
Honey – 1 TBSP
Apple Peel, Cinnamon Stick and Grated Nutmeg for garnish
Pour all ingredients in a mug and stir, add hot water, garnish. Simple and oh so tasty!
Candy Cane Vodka – give vodka a holiday twist.
Unwrap the candy canes and break in half
Place the candy canes in a 16 oz. mason jar.
Pour the vodka on top of the candy canes.
Allow the vodka and candy canes a few hours to steep. The candy canes will dissolve in the vodka, and then it’ll be good to drink after you shake it up!
Store in a cool, dry place in the mason jar for as long as it takes to drink this up.
