Hello! Not only is National Margarita Day next week, but I’ve been itching to try out a fireball margarita. But this margarita doesn’t use just any old Fireball.

This baby includes Jack Daniel’s whiskey that has been infused with classic red hots candy. I’m really excited to share the launch of my second blog, Our Crafty Cocktails.

You can find the red hots infused cinnamon whiskey recipe as the first recipe published their. Now that my children are adults, I have more time to pursue things I enjoy.

Traveling, crafting and making cocktails are pretty much my top three favorite hobbies, so I plan to bring a lot more of these to my blog in 2020.

It made sense to feature cocktails separately, as Our Crafty Mom is definitely focused on crafts, home decorating and DIY. I do share easy recipes here and will continue to do so.

If you enjoy cocktail recipes, I hope you will follow along with me on this new adventure. But today I’m thrilled to be teaming up with some of my friends to share margaritas for National Margarita Day, which is February 22nd.

Let’s get to this yummy Fireball margarita.
