I’m No June Cleaver

About 3 weeks ago, I had the pleasure of traveling to Los Angeles and working at the Ultimate Women’s Expo with What the Flicka? It was awesomesauce.

In preparation for the expo, I designed 2 cocktails that we served as samples for everyone (over 21!) to try. The one I am sharing with you today got such great feedback – many people said they were going to use this as their signature cocktail for Thanksgiving!

Now I will say that this cocktail steps out of my comfort zone quite a bit because it contains whiskey. You heard me. WHISKEY. Normally, I can’t even stand the smell of it but this, my friends, is no ordinary whiskey – it’s cinnamon whiskey and it is ah-mazing.

Ingredients:
1 shot of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky
Apple Cider
Ice

Directions:
Pour 1 shot of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky over ice in a tumbler glass, fill with apple cider and throw it back! (Because the last thing you’d expect to see is June Cleaver throwing back the whiskey – though I wonder what was in HER coffee cup each morning. Ha!)

Cheers!
