Cinnamon Latte

If you have not already heard, I am dedicating today and these next 4 days to Fireball Whisky.  When I find a yummy sounding shooter or cocktail that they post on Facebook, I re-post it on my Facebook page A Year Of Cocktails.  (If you haven't already, go ahead and "like" my page)  I now have 5 that I want to try, so I thought this would be a great way to try them.  I call it:





Today I start off these 5 days with one of their shooters they call Cinnamon Latte.  I do taste the Fireball the most in this shooter, but it is not overwhelming enough to set my mouth on fire.....which is a good thing.  Don't get me wrong, I like Fireball......but I can't make a Fireball on the rocks and enjoy it, it's just too hot for me.  

I have made a few Fireball Whisky cocktails in the past and have enjoyed them all, so I fully expect to enjoy these "5 Days Of Fireball" a lot too.

On a side note, school is coming to an end.....yes I said it.....can I believe it?  Maybe?  Our oldest's Freshman year will be over next week and he will only have (sniff, sniff) 3 more years of High School to go.  He is growing up so fast.....actually they all are.  That being said, I am selling customized teacher/school wine charms at my Etsy Shop if anyone is stuck on what to get your child's teacher.  I know "wine" charms might not sound like the right gift, but if they were called "Coffee Mug" charms I think that would sound better, ha ha.  I am also now making customized favors (which you can check out here) for Bachelorette Parties, Baby Shower, Wedding Showers, Weddings, Birthday Parties, etc.  Check them out here at my Etsy Shop as well.  Spread the word, you never know who is looking for sometime new and totally customizable!  OK, OK, back to today's cocktail.

Here are my links to Days 2-5:

Here is Fireball's recipe for a Cinnamon Latte:

In a shaker, add ice and the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a shot glass and enjoy!!
