Oh yes, it’s that that time of year again. The leaves turn and fall, the air becomes brisk, and the temperature of our food and drink is gets turned up. Enter Fireball Whiskey, a Canadian favorite with a kick that has helped our comrades to the north combat the artic winters; and the tagline: “Tastes like Heaven, Burns like Hell,” gives a pretty accurate description of the kick that the drinker endures during consumption.
Likened to Red Hots candies, the cinnamon flavored firewater is 33% alcohol by volume (that’s 66 U.S. proof for whoever is counting)--being warmed from the inside-out seems like an understatement. So, if you’re not the type to sit sipping a Hot Toddy by the fireplace, may we suggest another method? Try one of these delicious drinks that will satisfy (and warm up), no jacket required.
