Every so often, you come across a combination of liquids that creates a surprising alchemy, magically reproducing other flavor profiles you wouldn’t expect them to. Like the way amaretto, rum, beer, and, um, fire, combine to replicate the uncanny flavor of Dr. Pepper. Here, Fireball Cinnamon Whisky blends with cream soda and nutmeg-flecked whipped cream to reproduce the rich, creamy flavor of cinnamon rolls—in liquid form, and with a boozy kick.
Try one and marvel at how much it tastes like its namesake. Then line up another one to make sure you got that right.
- .75 oz Fireball Cinnamon Whisky
- .75 oz cream soda
- Whipped cream, to top.
- Grated nutmeg, for garnish
- Fill a shot glass with equal parts cream soda and Fireball Cinnamon Whisky.
