  • 1 1/2 ounce cinnamon whiskey (I recommend Fireball - more cinnamon, less whiskey flavor than the other cinnamon whiskeys, I've heard)
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier (don't skimp on the cheap stuff here!)
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce strawberry purée*
  • simple syrup , optional**
  • 1 ounce soda water
  • *Strawberry purée:
  • Blend one pint of strawberries in a high-speed blender until very smooth , adding a bit of water if necessary to thin out (should not be necessary with fresh strawberries but might be a good idea with frozen)
  • **Simple syrup: combine equal parts water and granulated sugar in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is totally dissolved. Let cool and store in airtight container in refrigerator.


  1. Combine cinnamon whiskey, Grand Marnier, lemon juice, strawberry purée with ice in a cocktail shaker. Add simple syrup to taste, if desired. Shake vigorously and pour over the rocks or into a stemmed cocktail glass. Top with soda and serve.
