Easy two ingredient Fireball and Ginger Ale Cocktail tastes amazing and is so easy to make. The perfect combination of ginger and cinnamon in a cocktail.
Fireball and Ginger Ale Cocktail
The first time I made this cocktail I asked my husband John if he wanted to try it out. He taste tests a lot of cocktails for me and is great about letting me know his real opinion on them.
I knew this was a winner when I never got the cocktail back from him. I looked up from working and realized he had taken the glass with him to relax in his chair.
He said that the flavor combination of ginger and Fireball Cinnamon Whisky surprised him with how great it tasted.
There is a kick of flavor that works great together.
This Fireball cocktail is also known as a Ginger Balls cocktail. I don't know how they come up with the names for some of the Fireball Cocktails but they are always amusing.
We have been having a ton of fun mixing with Fireball. It is a really versatile flavored whiskey that tastes amazing with a lot of different mixers.
This highball cocktail is perfect for fall parties! With only needing two ingredients you can make this by the glass or make it in a pitcher to serve multiple guests.
Other great mixers for Fireball cinnamon whiskey that we are playing with include Coke, Cranberry Juice, Cream Soda, Lemon-Lime Soda, or just enjoy a shot of Fireball on its own.

Step 1 - Add ice to a cocktail glass. Pour in Fireball Whiskey and top with Ginger Ale
Step 2 - Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead – We do not suggest making this recipe to far ahead of time. You don't want to lose the carbonation in the ginger ale.
Storage – Leftovers do not store well for this drink since the bubbles fade.
Substitutions - Change up the garnish and use apple slices, a cinnamon sugar rim on the glass, add in vanilla vodka.
Optional garnish ideas include star anise.
Add in Cointreau orange liqueur for a bit of orange flavor.
Add a squeeze of lime juice for a different flavor, add a lime wedge to the drink.
Vegetarian Option - This recipe is vegetarian.
Vegan Option – This recipe is vegan
Gluten Free - This recipe is gluten-free
Alcohol Free Option – NA Non-alcoholic spirits can be used to make this a zero proof cocktail/mocktail.
Smaller Serving Size – This recipe makes one serving in a rocks glass. You can change the serving size to fit your tastes.
Larger Group/More servings – This recipe can easily be doubled or more to serve a larger group. Just make sure you don't let the ginger ale sit out to long so you don't lose the carbonation.
Sugar Free – Zero Sugar Ginger Ale can be used to lower the sugar.
We do not use a cocktail shaker for this recipe. The bubbles from the ginger ale would make a mess if shaken up to much. All you need to do is stir the cocktail with a bartending spoon.
