Fireball Eggnog Cocktail

Our rich and creamy Fireball Eggnog Cocktail recipe only requires 2 ingredients, Fireball, and eggnog, and comes together in just a few minutes.

Fireball cinnamon whiskey adds a warm spice, subtle sweetness, and alcohol kick to an innocent dairy-based drink – while it tastes creamy and makes you feel warm and cozy inside, don’t underestimate the underlying Fireball-induced hot flash!

Christmas cocktails are always fun to sip while sitting by the fireplace or trimming the holiday tree because when you add a little liquor to your beverage, you’ve balanced the cool winter weather with the heat from the Fireball.

Tips For Making Fireball Eggnog

  • This is an easy holiday cocktail that can be made using store-bought eggnog. Be sure to use a good quality brand that does not have other flavors already added to it. 
  • If you don’t have Fireball, any brand of cinnamon whiskey will work just as well for this recipe.
  • You can use clear karo syrup in place of the water to rim your glass. The cinnamon sugar mixture will stick in a much thicker coating than it does with the water.

How to Store Fireball Eggnog

  • To Store: This cocktail is meant to be consumed as soon as you make it and shouldn’t be saved for later!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this a multi-serving recipe?

Yes, you can make this ahead as a large batch if you are entertaining a crowd. Use 1 quart (4 cups) of premade eggnog mixed with ¾ cup of Fireball whisky. Keep it refrigerated and pour over ice in individual glasses as needed.

Can I make my eggnog from scratch?

Yes, you can make your eggnog from scratch if you prefer. If you make homemade eggnog, add the Fireball whisky instead of any traditional (unflavored) whiskey or bourbon that is usually added. Homemade Fireball eggnog will last in the refrigerator, in a closed container, for up to two weeks.
