I don't know about you, but when it comes to Father's Day, I look for creative ways to make my dad feel special. Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or in this case, Father's Day. The goal is to let your dad know he's appreciated and loved. It also helps if you can give him a fun and stress-free day. One way to make Dad (or any adult for that matter) know you care is to make something just for him (or her). So today, I'm sharing a recipe to honor Dad, a Cinnamon Whisky Cocktail.

While Fireball Cinnamon Whisky has been around since the ’80s, lately it’s been making a comeback. Known for its spicy cinnamon kick, similar to a red hot candy, it’s the perfect drink to give Dad a taste of the past while still making him feel cool and hip.

And don’t worry, this cocktail is so simple to make. All you need is just three ingredients and some ice.

Now, let’s not forget a few treats for Dad, either. Chocolate is a must. Since you’ll be busy shaking up cocktails, why not plan ahead and order some sweets. This year, I’m loving all things sweet and salty. Whether it’s Handmade CaramelsSalted Caramel Chocolate Covered OREO® Cookies or Homemade Pretzel Bark, Dad is going to be in chocolate heaven with these treats.

Sounds like a pretty good plan, right? So go ahead and give Dad the day off and fill his plate (and drink glass) with all kinds of goodness. Let me show you how to make the cocktail.
