Now that you’ve finally grown up, it’s time to stop taking Fireball shots. But if you’re still holding on to your youth, you don’t have to give it up altogether—you just have to find some more respectable ways to drink it. Add a jigger’s worth of the hot stuff to a glass and top it off with one of these mixers, and you’ll be well on your way.
Generally, whiskey and Coke are a good pair, and Fireball’s heat doesn’t change that. In fact, it blends well with Coke’s familiar flavors (we can’t prove it, but we bet there’s a little cinnamon in Coke’s secret recipe). Just because Pepsi messed up their spicy cola experiment doesn’t mean you have to as well.
People have been adding cinnamon to chocolate drinks probably as far back as the Aztecs. Fireball and hot cocoa takes advantage of that centuries-old tradition and adds a whiskey kick that’s just the thing for a bleak winter’s day.
