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?

“Partridge in a Snowy Pear Tree”

This shot is pure frosting.


1 oz. Pear Schnapps

1/2 oz. heavy cream

Dash of Cinnamon

Cinnamon Stick


Combine everything but the cinnamon stick in an iced shaker. Shake that shaker. Pour into a shot glass and garnish with the stick. Now you’re ready to see Hugo!

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