We’ve made it to the final home stretch before Christmas! But are you still searching for a cocktail to serve over the weekend?
Ryan, of the site Boozeblogger, offers up this dessert-inspired cocktail in his “12 Drinks of Christmas Series”, the Carrot Cake Cocktail. I decided to stir this one up for the office crew early in the week (we had all the ingredients on hand!) and I was surprised at how the warming flavors of cinnamon, butterscotch, and caramel came together so pleasantly in this drink. I probably should have been more generous with the garnish on top; it’s a lesson learned for the next go-around! Below are some of the shots from my mini photo shoot, but here’s the recipe (with a link to Boozeblogger’s site, so be sure to read the rest of the holiday series) as well so you can stir one up at home.
Carrot Cake Cocktail
- 1 oz Hiram Walker Original Cinn

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
