Nothing gets you in the fall spirit like mixing up a batch of festive cocktails! Charm friends and party-goers this season with these cozy fall bevs for every occasion. Unless maybe you all just kind of love Fireball more and it’s a lot easier to just do shots. Here are five fall cocktails that are actually just taking a bunch of shots of Fireball whiskey because honestly, you know that’s what they want.
Mulled wine is a classic fall drink that does double duty: tastes great and makes your home smell amazing! Just mix a bottle of red wine with your favorite spices like cinnamon and cloves and simmer on low heat while you get ready. Be sure to let it simmer long enough that you forget it’s there and just start throwing back shots of Fireball. Mmmm!
Apple Cider Mimosa
Literally spice up this brunch staple by swapping the orange juice for fresh apple cider. Nothing gets the party going like a lil bubby, except seeing who can take the longest pull from the fifth of Fireball in your freezer.
Spiked Hot Chocolate
Hot cocoa can quickly be transformed into a festive cocktail by mixing it with coffee liqueur, Bailey’s, or even flavored vodka. Good luck trying to get the proportions right, though. And don’t think for one second that you’ll be able to successfully keeping it hot, but not so hot that the alcohol burns off. This lukewarm, curdling mess will for sure have your guests saying, “Hey is there any Fireball left?”
A hot toddy is the perfect companion for a cozy night in. A little bourbon, honey and hot water will warm you up and fix whatever ails you, but, fuck it, not as much as a straight shot of cinnamon whiskey will. Just chug Fireball because why the hell not??
Caramel Apple Moscow Mule
Impress your friends with this inventive and skillful cocktail, so long as you’re prepared to shell out for enough caramel vodka and ginger beer for 12 people. If not, no biggie. Everyone will have just as much fun taking syrupy shots of Fireball from sticky shot glasses all night. Drunk is drunk!
These cocktails are perfect for a fall get-together where you think you want a classy autumnal drink, but what you actually want is to feel the cinnamon burn of another round of Fireball shots.
