Creamy Irish Balls

Creamy Irish Balls

It's Friday!  

It's been over a week (one day over) since I've last posted and I promise that I have been wanting to in this last week.  I really did.  

My days have been filled up with family and helping them out.  I absolutely LOVE the fact that I am a stay at home Mom, for the sole reason that when my kids are in school I can help out with family stuff in my free time.  

This is the very first year that I have had all 4 kids in school, so it's a nice change.

I was looking online for some Irish inspired cocktails for St. Patrick's Day.  I found a couple and decided to put my own twist on them.  

Today's cocktail I call Creamy Irish Balls.  I had a few names for this cocktail come to mind, but this one I thought was the best!

This cocktail is creamy from the Irish Cream and then has a nice cinnamon kick at the end.  

Fireball whisky seems to do that when mixed with other ingredients.  It always seems to give a good cinnamon-ey kick to finish off each sip.  Now you have another option when trying to decide what to drink for St. Patrick's Day!  My goal is to give you a couple more choices between now and then.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's my recipe for Creamy Irish Balls:

  • 1 1/2 ounces Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 1 1/2 ounces Fireball Whisky
In a shaker, add ice and both ingredients above.  Shake and strain into a glass and enjoy!

Here's to family.  I don't know what I would do without mine!

    1. Ha ha! I'm glad you checked it out! Thank you for pinning. I had a couple names in mind, but this one cracked me up. A friend of mine said, "You are going to have some crazy google searches with that name, lol"! Cheers!! xoxo
