Cinnamon White Russian

It’s only fitting to end the year with a cocktail.

After the craziness of the holiday season, Pat and I tend to be pretty low-key on New Years Eve. Our girls usually are off doing something fun, while we would rather lay low. This year is no different. We have plans to take Finn and go for a hike, cozy by the fire and play thirteen gin, and we may or may not enjoy a few adult cocktails.

I plan to start the evenly by sipping on a Cinnamon White Russian. Typically a White Russian is just vodka, coffee liqueur and cream. However, in this cinnamon version, I add RumChata (a cinnamon and vanilla rum liqueur), vanilla vodka with Kahlúah and a splash of cream. The cinnamon sugar rim adds dazzling sweet cinnamon touch.

The perfect cocktail to ring in the new year, if I do say so myself.
