1. Spiced Apple Cider

Spiced Apple Cider

Let’s start with a classic. Fireball’s cinnamon flavors are reminiscent of get-togethers by the fire, which means enjoying a spiced drink. Here’s an easy two-ingredient Fireball recipe that will take you to your fondest memories and back! Cinnamon and apples were born to be enjoyed together, especially in a boozy drink. How about this one to get a holiday party started?

Place a large ice cube in a short glass, pour the Fireball and top the drink with hard cider. Gently stir and garnish with a cinnamon stick or an apple slice.

2. First Degree Burn

First Degree Burn

Fireball is certainly liquid fire! The alcoholic warmth and the spicy cinnamon won’t actually cause you first-degree burns, but you’ll undoubtedly feel on fire. Enjoy this long drink at outdoor grilling parties or the club — this drink is the very definition of versatility. And it’s crowd-pleasing too!

  • 8 oz Cranberry Juice
  • 5 oz Fireball

In a highball glass filled with fresh ice, pour the Fireball whiskey and top with cranberry juice. Garnish with a few dried cranberries floating around. You can’t get this one wrong, and everyone will love it! That’s guaranteed. Try it, and you’ll see!

3. Dr. Fireball

Dr. Fireball

Is there anything Dr. Pepper can’t do? The odd soda and its unique mint, allspice and licorice flavors put the soft drink in its own category, but that makes it an exciting cocktail mixer, even for the thrilling cinnamon-scented whiskey. And if you’re not a Dr. Pepper kind of person, try the recipe below with Sprite. You’ll have to change the drink’s name, though.

  • 8 oz Dr. Pepper soda
  • 5 oz Fireball

Fill a highball glass with ice and pour the Fireball. Top with doctor pepper and garnish with a mint sprig. Slap the mint before placing it in the drink to release its aroma.

4. Dirty Steve

whiskey cocktail

If you’re craving a sweet, fiery drink, then the Dirty Steve is for you. This drink is an homage to everything Canadian with two of the country’s most popular products: Fireball and maple syrup. Before you attempt to put this one together, make sure you get the real stuff — authentic maple syrup. It has no substitution.

  • 5 oz Fireball
  • 5 oz Canadian maple syrup

In a chilled shot glass, pour the Fireball and top it with the maple syrup. Drink immediately before the syrup precipitates. Sweet and spicy, this is one rewarding shot!

5. Atomic Fireball

Atomic Fireball

What happens if you mix the fiery Fireball with the incredibly alcoholic 151 rum? You get an Atomic Fireball, and it’s quite a rush! Grenadine gives color to the shot while providing some comfort after the blast.

  • 1/4 oz 151-proof rum
  • 1/4 oz grenadine
  • 1/2 oz Fireball

This layered shot is tricky to assemble. Pour the grenadine and gently top it with Fireball; try not to disturb the grenadine layer, then float the 151-proof rum and shoot it. When done right, this shot is as pretty as it is intense!

6. Flaming Ring of Fire

Flaming Ring of Fire

Talking about flames, amp up the shot above, replacing the sweet grenadine with a few drops of Tabasco? Why not, right? If you thought Fireball was spicy, wait until you try this bad boy.

  • 1/2 oz 151 rum
  • 4 drops of tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 oz Fireball

This one-ounce shot is more than enough to wake you up. In a shot glass, pour the Fireball and the 151-proof rum. Add a dash or two of Tabasco and get fired up! This spicy shot is so good it’s addictive but watch out; it packs a punch.

7. The Sunset

The Sunset

Sunrises and sunsets are common themes in the cocktail world, but this is the warmest and spiciest sunset you’ll experience. This drink is easy to put together, too, and some folks like replacing the orange juice with orange soda, you know, just for the fun of it.

  • 8 oz orange juice
  • 5 oz Fireball

In a highball glass filled with ice, pour the orange juice and top it with the Fireball. It should cause a sunset effect. Enjoy the sunset with the ones closer to you!

8. Ming Tran

Ming Tran

This spicy drink makes the most out of two spice-scented drinks, Captain Morgan and Fireball. Together they become the most aromatic cocktail you’ve tried. If you like Fireball, this cocktail is for you — even if you’re not a fan of the good-old Captain. The drink makes the most out of the two spirits!

  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 oz Captain Morgan
  • 1 oz Fireball
  • 5 oz apple juice

In a highball glass filled with ice, add the Fireball and Captain Morgan; top with apple juice and garnish with a pinch of cinnamon.

9. Fireball Pumpkin Pie Shot Pops

Fireball Pumpkin Pie Shot Pops

Did you know you can actually eat some drinks? That’s the case with these pumpkin pie shot pops, and they’re so good you’ll want to have more than one. Remember, there’s booze in these tasty sweets, though, so don’t overdo dessert.

  • 3 oz pumpkin pudding mix
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup Fireball
  • 4 oz whipped canned whipped cream

Mix the pumpkin pudding mix with cold milk and add the Fireball. Fill an ice tray with the mixture and freeze overnight. Don’t forget to place the popsicle sticks when the mixture has hardened a bit. Serve these boozy pops at your next grilling party, and garnish them with whipped cream for a complete experience.
