Indulge in the delightful combination of Fireball and cream soda with our easy recipe. This fiery and fizzy concoction is a treat for your taste buds, perfect for a relaxed evening or a fun gathering.
Fireball And Cream Soda Ingredients
Fireball cinnamon whisky brings a spicy kick with a hint of comforting cinnamon warmth to the cocktail. Cream soda’s sweet and creamy nature perfectly balances the heat of the Fireball.
- 1 cup of ice
- ⅔ cup of cream soda
- 1½ ounces of Fireball cinnamon whisky
You can store your Fireball cinnamon whisky in the refrigerator to keep it cold, along with your cream soda, so your drink stays colder for longer, and the ice will not melt as quickly.
Substitutions and Additions
FIREBALL CINNAMON WHISKY: If you prefer a milder spice, you can substitute Fireball with a regular cinnamon-flavored whisky.
CREAM SODA: Experiment with different brands or flavors of cream soda to find your favorite combination.
I like to use the classic A&W cream soda for this cocktail, but any brand that you prefer to drink will work just as well.
ICE: If you want to avoid dilution, consider using whisky stones or frozen cream soda cubes instead of regular ice.
ICE CREAM: You can skip the ice and add a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream to make a Fireball and cream soda float for a fun adult dessert cocktail.
How To Make This Fireball And Cream Soda Recipe
Making this adult beverage is as easy as adding everything to your glass and enjoying it.
STEP ONE: Add the ice, cream soda, and Fireball whisky to a 10-ounce highball glass. Gently stir with a cocktail spoon and enjoy.
If you don’t have a tall cocktail spoon to stir this drink, you can simply use a straw to gently combine the whisky and cream soda before enjoying this cocktail.
How To Serve
For a unique twist, use this cocktail as a base for a boozy float by adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Pair your Fireball and cream soda with a cheese platter for a delightful contrast of flavors.
We have a few handy tips for storing the components of this tasty drink.
MAKE AHEAD: You can pre-chill your Fireball cinnamon whisky and cream soda in the fridge for a quicker cocktail preparation.
IN THE FRIDGE: While this delicious drink is best enjoyed fresh, you can store any leftovers in the fridge for up to a day. Keep in mind that the ice may melt, so it won’t be as refreshing.
IN THE FREEZER: Freezing this cocktail isn’t recommended, as the carbonation in the cream soda and the alcohol content of the Fireball may lead to undesirable changes in texture.
