Homemade Fireball Cinnamon Whisky Caramel Sauce

Homemade Fireball Cinnamon Whisky Caramel Sauce

Are you already drooling? As promised, here is my recipe for homemade Fireball caramel sauce. This is the perfect sauce to serve over a luscious bowl of vanilla ice cream and savor slowly. So how did this recipe come about? As you all know, I am a huge fan of Fireball as a drink. I also love trying to find new ways to enjoy this fiery cinnamon beverage, like my Hard Apple Cider Bread Pudding with Fireball Sauce. Desserts are not something I make a lot of because I’m not that great of a baker but I do still enjoy … Continue Reading →

It was always vanilla ice cream with Hershey’s chocolate syrup and he would mix it all up so it … Continue Reading →

Watermelon Screwdriver Cocktail and a Bonus Watermelon Granita Recipe!

Screwdrivers have always been one of my favorite drinks but for this week’s cocktail I have a little twist on the classic screwdriver. We are adding watermelon ice cubes to it!

The original part of the drink is just the basic recipe of orange juice and vodka.
