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?

“Kris Kringle”

This shot is gonna be like a root beer float.


1/2 oz Amaretto

1/2 oz Root Beer Schnapps

1/4 oz Half-and-Half

Whipped Cream

Maraschino Cherry


Combine first two ingredients in the shot glass. Use the back of a spoon to layer the Half-and-Half on top. Do it slowly, now. That’s right. Then top with whipped cream and a Drunk Cherry. Now you’re ready to repeat “what exactly it is you do” to your Grandma!

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