The combo of fiery cinnamon and sweet apple is one of those flavors I always crave when the air gets crisp, and when getting cozy becomes my number one goal in life. This Fireball Whiskey Punch is guaranteed to turn up the heat as the temperatures continue to dip.

When I was a kid, the most popular dare on the playground was who could suck on a fireball jawbreaker the longest. I don’t mean to brag, but I could totally hold my own in that little game. That childhood cinnamon flavor is what Fireball Whiskey is all about. If you’ve never tried it, stop right now and make this punch for your friends and family tonight!

Fireball Whiskey is a favorite in colder regions and boasts the tagline, “Tastes like Heaven, Burns like Hell.” It warms the taste buds and offers a strong shot of that spicy cinnamon flavor that people love this time of year. It pairs nicely with many flavors, including apple, and you’ll absolutely love this recipe! This Apple Brandy Slush or Apple Pie Sangria are other delicious apple cocktails to try. And if you love whiskey cocktails with extra kick, try this Desert Wasteland Whiskey Cocktail or this Whiskey Sour Recipe.

And if you can’t get enough Fireball, use it in this Cinnamon Whiskey Sangria and this Easy Fireball Fudge!

    Hi! This might be a really silly question, but is it a half liter or half of a 2 liter? Thanks!

    • Lisa Longley says

      It is half a liter.

  2. Lisa says

    Can I use lemon lime seltzer instead of soda?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Yes, but you might find that it’s lacking sweetness. It’s just a matter of personal taste.

  3. Jules says

    Could you replace the lemon/lime soda with a vanilla cream soda?

    • Lisa Longley says

      For some reason, the idea of apple juice with vanilla cream soda isn’t appealing to me. But! If it is to you, I say go for it!

  4. Marie says

    Bonjour, j’aimerais savoir ce qu’est le sucre rouge, je ne connais pas ça? Merci !

    • Lisa Longley says

      It’s colored sugar used in the U.S. primarily for decorating cookies. It is what you see around the top of the glass in the photos.
