February 07, 2010 (Day 8 ) — Toasted

What would drinking be without throwing the odd shot into the mix? And since it’s Super Bowl Sunday — traditionally a day of revelation, even though none of my teams made it — we figured this would be the perfect time to bust out a shot recipe and celebrate the win of some team we don’t really care about!

Go Los Angeles Rams! Win the World Series!

Naturally, since it’s a shot, this is going to be a shorter recipe, and shorter drink. This little bad boy is called the Toasted, and it combines the sweetness of amaretto liqueur with the whomph of cinnamon whiskey. And with snow slowly falling on the ground for what feels like the third week in a row, and a damn good football game on the tube, what better way to celebrate with a warming cocktail?

  • 1.5 oz amaretto liqueur
  • .5 oz cinnamon whiskey

Pour the amaretto into your shot glass. Pour the cinnamon whiskey into the shot glass. Pour the shot into your stomach.

Good for football. Good for jazz on vinyl. Who dat!

Lovin’ it. A very Christmassy shot, what with the extreme sweet almond of the amaretto mixed with the warming sensation of the cinnamon whiskey. If you’re interested in something a little bit longer lasting, if you double up both your amaretto and your whiskey, this would make an excellent sipping drink on ice in a rocks glass.

Genieße das Leben ständig!

Du bist länger tot als lebendig!
