If you don't know about Fireball, then you either A: don't drink, B: don't drink whiskey, or C: don't listen to country music. It is the new fad in drinking whiskey because it's cinnamon flavored. The hubs used to love Southern Comfort, and that's still his choice when we are out, but at home he will go for Fireball on the rocks without even flinching. I'm telling you I have had my fair share of Jack in my time, and it's completely in my past. Beer's are also relatively new for me, although I love a good Blue Moon from time to time. I don't care for whiskey or things with cinnamon flavor all that much, but this little recipe is pretty darn good. Like apple pie in a glass. All you need is: A shot of Fireball mixed with an Apple Orchard beer (my new favorite beer! It tastes like apple cider and its uh mah zing! Picture Martinelli's with a kick! Dangerous!) Pour your beer and the shot of whiskey into a frosty Pilsner glass, garnish with an apple slice and it's almost like your having a cold slice of apple pie. Thoughts are rolling around in my head about maybe topping it with whipped cream also. Like a dessert cocktail??!!? Ok lets not go crazy here! It's just a light and refreshing cocktail, and sometimes at the end of a long day, that's all you need!
