Tips & Tricks

  • Be sure to adjust your amounts for your glass size. Since the ingredients are in a one-to-one ratio this is super easy. We used 2 ounce shot glasses, but if yours are larger or smaller, you can adjust accordingly.
  • For a special treat, you can skip the cinnamon sugar rim and used finely crushed Cinnamon Toast cereal instead. It will add even more yummy cinnamon flavoring to the shots! You can even top with whipped cream too!
  • If you’re planning to make these for a party, you can put the Fireball and RumChata in the fridge to chill beforehand. Or you can make a large batch in a cocktail shaker and shake to chill, then pour into shot glasses.
