TGIF  to everyone,our gift to you on this Friday is a homemade “Fireball Whiskey” to light up your weekend!

DIY "Fireball Whiskey" by CLEAN DRINK HAPPY HOUR

Fireball is a hot drink…literally. People seem to either love this stuff or be repulsed by it. Artificially flavored anything isn’t our thing, so I think the reason we’re not so hot for Fireball is because the strong cinnamon flavor simply doesn’t taste natural. So we have taken it upon ourselves to make an easy DIY Fireball whiskey alternative, flavored with natural ingredients. Watch the short how-to video for instructions.

DIY Fireball Recipe

  • 1 –  750 ml. glass jar
  • 6 sticks of cinnamon
  • 6 dried peppers of your choice (less if you don’t like it HOT)
  • 1 fl. oz. of honey
  • whiskey

Fill the jar with all of the ingredients, shake, and allow to sit at room temperature for 5 days. Be sure to shake the jar at least once a day to thoroughly distribute those flavors into the whiskey. After 5 days of infusing, filter the contents of the jar into a different container using a fine mesh, cheesecloth, or a coffee filter to remove all of the pepper seeds and grittiness from the cinnamon sticks. All that’s left from this super simple flavored whiskey recipe is to enjoy.


CHEERS to the FREAKING weekend!
