Homemade Fireball Whiskey



Plan ahead, as this takes 7 days to infuse.

Homemade Fireball Whiskey


  1. 1 750 milliliter bottle whiskey
    5 to 6 cinnamon sticks
    3/4 ounce simple syrup
    4 to 5 dried chilies


  1. Pour whiskey into a large mason jar or container with an airtight lid. Add cinnamon sticks and simple syrup. Stir gently. Cover, and let sit for 5 days in a cool, dark space.
  2. After 5 days, open the cinnamon-infused whiskey, and add dried red chilies. Cover, and shake a few times to mix. Store for 2 more days.
  3. After 7 days, strain whiskey through a cheesecloth or strainer to remove the cinnamon and chili peppers. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 to 6 months.
