You don’t have to give up your favorite cinnamon whisky just because you are gracefully approaching your 30s. True lovers of Fireball know that when it comes to slaying the dragon, age is just a number. What does change over time, however, is how you drink it. That’s right. As you and your palate evolve, you may find you no longer want to gulp down shot after shot. Fortunately for you, there are many other ways to enjoy Fireball well into adulthood. Here are five ways to drink Fireball like a grown-up.
Drink It for Dessert
Fireball is cinnamon whisky, after all. It’s sweeter and thicker than your average whisky, which makes it a delicious base for dessert cocktails. One of the most popular is the Cinnamon Toast Crunch, made with Fireball, Rumchata and Kahlua. The coffee-tinged, White Russian-esque drink is a perfect treat-yourself nightcap (feel free to come up with your own, more suitably grown-up name for it, like Spiced Russian or Firechata). If creamy cocktails aren't your style, try it mixed with Stoli Vanilla and apple juice for an apple pie cocktail that tastes just like the all-American classic itself.
Heat It up
Fireball is called Fireball for a reason―it burns. But it’s a good burn, like a stick of Big Red gum or hot cinnamon Altoids. So play into it, and heat up a Fireball cocktail. The best way to do so is in a hot Fireball Apple Cider. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, and you’ll wonder why you haven’t been drinking these your whole life.
