Christmas in Chicago with my family, boyfriend and dog. We will all need to keep warm, so “How is Adam Getting His Drink On?” will be “DRINK DECEMBER!” until the New Year. Here’s the shots in the arm we’ll be drinking. Join us?

“Drunk Cherries”


Jar of Maraschino Cherries

Vodka or Rum


Pour 1/4 of the liquid off the top of the jar of cherries, and replace it with the vodka or rum. Let that steep for a day. Garnish your drink with a drink! Now, you can get drunk in peace.

You can find more drinks like these in the book “HOLIDAY SHOTS” by Cider Mill Press.
