The Fireball Shrub Cocktail

Drinking vinegars or shrubs are nothing new in the drinking scene but they’re sure have made a comeback as of recent. Our friends, McClary Brothers in Michigan have an ever changing seasonal selection but one thing is constant; they start with an organic, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar and add fresh, seasonal ingredients and then organic cane sugar for near perfection in a bottle.

Check the brothers out, pick up a bottle and make yourself a Fireball shrub cocktail:

1.5 oz. Fireball Whisky
1 tbsp. McClary Bros. Michigan Apple Pie drinking vinegar
2-3 oz. soda water

In a cocktail shaker full of ice, combine Fireball, drinking vinegar, & soda water and gently stir with a bar spoon. Pour contents over fresh ice in a lowball or rocks glass. Cheers to the finer things in life!

Fall Drinks, Because You Can’t Spell Fall Without Fireball!

Fall is upon us, the weather is changing and the days are getting shorter. The yearly reminder of our favorite holiday, Halloween! The un-official official holiday of all things Fireball Whisky and that special time of the year when the Average Joe has his head on a swivel as the undead freely roam our city streets.  It also means cozying up next to a fire with a drink in one hand and a great book in the other…or a drink in one hand and an iPhone in the other….or drinks in both hands, we don’t judge.

To help with the drinks, we’ve asked our friends, Jordan & Jocelyn over at This Girl Walks Into A Bar to mix up a variety of elegant and unique fall cocktails that anyone can master. Take a gander, recreate them, sip them and then check out their website for more recipes and ideas.

On Halloween night this year, treat yourself to the best cup of hot chocolate that you’ve ever tasted. A Wicked Coco is decadent, delicious, and definitely built to keep you thoroughly warmed and immensely happy as you celebrate the night away. Cheers to an evening of thrills, fun, and wickedness!

Wicked Coco
1.5 ounces Fireball Whisky
4 ounces 2% milk
4 ounces half &half
4 tablespoons hot chocolate powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon all spice

Whipped cream for garnish

Directions
Step 1: Combine the 2% milk, half & half, and hot chocolate powder in a saucepan and heat over a low flame. Add the ground cinnamon, all spice, and ground cinnamon and stir until well mixed.

Step 4: Allow the cocktail to cool off enough to drink, then serve.

If buckets of Halloween candy have been replaced with goblets of delicious cocktails, then the Deadly Pumpkin Martini is for you. Let’s just be clear about one thing. You’ve been warned: for the undead only!
