🥫 Storage instructions

🔍 FAQs

Can I use another type of vodka?

Absolutely! If you have whipped cream vodka, that’s a delightful alternative. And plain will do in a pinch!

Is the Fireball whiskey essential?

The Fireball adds a spicy cinnamon kick, but if you’re not a fan or don’t have it on hand, you can skip it or use regular whiskey with a dash more of cinnamon.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Make sure your apple juice or cider is chilled.
  • Adjust the sugar-cinnamon ratio according to your taste. Some like it sweeter, some spicier!
