Fireball Whisky Christmas Hug

This is the perfect drink to get you in the holiday spirit. You might think fireball is too strong a drink for daytime, but it is actually bottled at 33-percent alcohol by volume (making it 66 proof), meaning it contains less alcohol than traditional whisky and most vodka. Its cinnamon spiciness pairs perfectly with sweet and tart flavors of apple and cranberry, which are also common flavors for Thanksgiving dinner. 

Ingredients

1 ounce Fireball Whisky

2 ounces apple juice

1 ounce cranberry juice

Directions

Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker and shaker and shake until well blended.

Pour over ice.
