When it comes to Fireball, the infamous cinnamon whiskey, you may have only had it as a straight shot. While a plain Fireball Whisky shot isn’t the worst we have had, there is something about that cinnamon burn that bumps it way down on our list of favorite shots. However, Fireball is actually a fantastic spirit to use in cocktail recipes.

10 Delicious Fireball Drinks To Try At Home
Apple Pie on the Rocks
First up on our list is the Apple Pie on the Rocks recipe from Vegan Yack Attack, and yes, it really does taste like an apple pie but with a boozy twist. This cocktail pairs Fireball Whiskey with vanilla vodka, apple juice, and just a bit of extra cinnamon.
It’s simple to make, too. Rim your glass with brown sugar, add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice, shake it up, and pour it into your glass with fresh ice. You’ll want to sip and savor this one!
Fireball Orange Sweet Tea
Sweet tea is a summer staple, but this Fireball Orange Sweet Tea recipe from The Toasty Kitchen takes it up a notch.
Start with a tall glass with ice, then pour in Fireball, your favorite sweet tea, and orange juice. Stir to mix well and garnish with an orange slice. Though you can buy the juice from the store if you prefer, it has a more refreshing taste when freshly squeezed.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cocktail
Cinnamon Toast Crunch is a popular cereal because the flavor is delicious! Mantitlement has brought that same flavor combination to this Cinnamon Toast Crunch cocktail recipe.
With a cinnamon sugar rim on your glass, the creamy taste of RumChata, sweet vanilla vodka, and the great spicy whisky flavor of Fireball, it tastes like the grown-up version of everyone’s favorite cereal.
You’ll want to shake this one to blend the milk consistency of RumChata with the other liquors. Don’t forget to garnish with a cinnamon stick. Sip this one with caution cause it is sneaky!
Fireball Old Fashioned
The Fireball Old Fashioned by A Couple Cooks is not your average Old Fashioned recipe. Though it is still made with some bourbon and bitters like a traditional Old Fashioned, here you will also add cinnamon whisky, which gives it an extra-warm, spicy bite.
A Couple Cooks recommends using a large ice cube and garnishing with an orange peel and cinnamon stick. Our secret when we make this one is to bend the orange peel back and forth before adding it to the glass, so it releases fragrant and flavorful oils.
Fire In Ice: Apple Cider Fireball Slushie Cocktail
You may not automatically pair Fireball with a frozen drink, but despite the fall flavors in this cocktail, the slushie aspect makes it taste good all year. The Fire In Ice: Apple Cider Fireball Slushie Cocktail by Go Go Go Gourmet is both light and spicy.
To make it, combine Fireball, apple cider, and a splash of ginger beer with ice in a blender. Let it go until it’s nice and smooth, and add a fresh apple slice if you want to get fancy. If you don’t have ginger beer, ginger ale will work just fine.
This basic recipe is a Fireball drink you or your guests will never forget!
This recipe with just two ingredients comes directly from the Fireball headquarters and is one of those drinks that always attracts attention and not just for its funny name!
Grab some friends, shot glasses, and pint glasses. Pour your Fireball Whisky into a shot glass and Angry Orchard Hard Cider into the pint glass, leaving at least an inch of room.
To drink it, drop the whisky into the hard cider and enjoy it immediately. Everyone will be asking for one!
We don’t know about you, but we didn’t think that Fireball Whiskey and a blood mary could ever be combined before discovering this recipe!
However, we are mistaken because the Fire Blood cocktail by Spoon University has done it and done it well! Simply mix bloody mary mix and Fireball, stir with a celery stick, and add a lime wedge.
It is one of the most unexpected cocktails but is now one of our favorite ways to enjoy Fireball.
Caramel Apple Fireballs
These Caramel Apple Fireballs by Court’s House perfectly balance sugar and spice. It features Fireball Whiskey, caramel apple liqueur or caramel syrup, and apple juice to curate that great taste.
To make them, rim your favorite glass with granulated or brown sugar, shake up the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, and strain into the glass.
The Campfire Cocktail by The Soccer Mom Blog is aptly named because it looks like a campfire with flames and glowing embers when you are finished. Despite being a Fireball cocktail, it is fruity with just a hint of cinnamon.
Making this one requires extra attention to the directions. Start with grenadine in the bottom of a glass with ice. Then mix Fireball, bourbon, rum, peach juice, and cranberry juice in a cocktail shaker. The key is to slowly pour the juice and liquor mixture into the glass, being careful not to disturb the grenadine layer. Add a cherry or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!
Cinnamon Roll Cocktail
Want something delicious and easy? Try the Cinnamon Roll Cocktail by The Cookin’ Chicks! Just combine one part Fireball with three parts cream soda over ice and stir—the easiest and tastiest cocktail in one.
We like to take it one step further, though, and put a dollop of whipped cream on top. You could even add a dash of maple syrup, so it tastes like a cinnamon roll pancake!
