Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Happy Friday everyone!!  

Can you believe that the week is over?  

My children are officially out of school and winter break has begun!  Let the holiday parties, family gatherings, sports practices, games, Tae Kwon Do testing, video game playing, late night movie watching, family time, sleeping in (a girl can dream right?) and New Years Eve parties begin!

The other weekend one of my best friends was up for a visit.......OK, so I just consulted with my kids and husband and apparently she was up for Halloween.........but I'll tell you, in my world that was last weekend.  THAT'S how quickly this year is flying by!!  

Back to my story, she was up and wanted us all to try this Cinnamon Toast Crunch shot she had tried recently.  To be completely honest.......I didn't try it and have no clue what her recipe was.  

I know it had Rum Chata and Fireball in it and that's all I know.  I remember she made a shaker or two full.......but I don't remember if she actually remembered the recipe she was given or just winged it.  

I also seem to remember a mess in my kitchen where she was pouring it.......not sure if the shaker wasn't closed tight, or if she missed a couple shot glasses when she was straining the shots out of the shaker.....none the less, that is what inspired me to make tonight's cocktail!

This little shooter is REALLY REALLY good!  

My neighbor was walking by as I was taking my final photos for this post, so I convinced her to come into the backyard and have a shot with me.  

We both thought it was de-lish!  

Although she has a bottle of Fireball at home, I believe in the not too distant future she will be purchasing a bottle of Rum Chata to go with that bottle of Fireball.

Here is my recipe for a Cinnamon Toast Crunch shot:

  • 2 ounces Rum Chata
  • 1 ounce Fireball
  • cinnamon & sugar to rim the glasses (3 sugar : 1 cinnamon)

Rim two shot glasses with the cinnamon & sugar mixture.  In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Shake and strain into the shot glasses and enjoy!!

Here is to a fun filled weekend!  We will get to spend time with friends and family this weekend!  I'd love to hear what you all have planned for the weekend!
