When the weather starts to get cold, there’s nothing I love more than snuggling under a big blanket in my PJs, watching TV or reading a book, and drinking a mug full of hot chocolate.

That is, until I made a hot chocolate and put alcohol in it. Fireball, to be specific. 


Hot chocolate with cinnamon is already a delicious cold weather treat, but when you replace the cinnamon with a cinnamon flavored whisky, it’s on a whole new level of delicious.

Here’s how to make it. You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate, either chunks or chips
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 oz. Fireball Cinnamon Whisky
  • Whipped cream or marshmallows (for garnish)
  • Cinnamon (for garnish)

Pour milk and half and half in a saucepan and bring to a light simmer. Add the nutmeg, then stir. When it’s hot and the chocolate chips are melted, turn off the heat, then add 1 oz. of Fireball and stir.

Pour into a mug and top with whipped cream and cinnamon. If you prefer marshmallows in yours, soak them in some fireball first for an extra boozy kick.
