Cinnamon RumChata and Fireball Shot Ingredients

You don’t need a lot of different ingredients for these Cinnamon Toast Crunch Fireball and rum milk shots. The star ingredient is Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, which is a delicious, crunchy, cinnamon-flavoured breakfast cereal. You can use the grocery store brand if you want.

You will also be using RumChata, vanilla frosting and a cinnamon whisky such as Fireball for example. RumChata is a rum-based cream liqueur flavoured with sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. It’s smooth, creamy and totally delicious. It also works very well in this recipe because it complements the other flavours in the recipe.

If you don’t have vanilla frosting to hand you can sub anything sticky, since it’s just to help the cereal pieces adhere to the glass. Marshmallow fluff, corn syrup or even honey would work too. In fact, I bet honey would really complement the cereal flavour!

How to Make Cinnamon Toast Crunch Fireball and Rum Milk Shots

You will first make cereal-infused RumChata and then the shots. The first step is to put the cereal in a measuring cup then pour RumChata over the top and stir. Let the mixture sit for half an hour, stirring a couple of times. After that you can strain the mixture into a container, ensuring the press the cereal through the sieve with a wooden spoon to squeeze as much liquid out as you can. Chill this liquid until you’re ready to proceed with the cinnamon toast crunch fireball and rum milk shots.

Put the vanilla frosting on the rims of shot glasses then press cereal pieces on it for decoration or else just roll it in cereal pieces.

Add ice to a shaker then add the rum and cinnamon whisky mixture. Shake and pour into the shot glasses and serve garnished with a crunchy piece of cereal as decoration. These are the small bottles I used for shot glasses.

You can also use anything sticky on the rim to stick the cereal pieces too. As for the RumChata, it’s a creamy rum liqueur which can be replaced with something else like Bailey’s for example. This RumChata and Fireball shooter is great made the way it is but it would also be nice if you tweak the ingredients to your preferences.

Cereal Shooters FAQs

How far in advance can you make Cinnamon Toast Crunch Fireball and rum milk shots?

You can make this recipe up to a week ahead if you want. Just don’t add the ice to the mixture and ensure you keep it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Oh, and give it a very good shake before serving!

What size glasses is best to serve these rum and cinnamon whisky shots?

I find that 2-ounce shot glasses are the perfect size to serve RumChata and Fireball cinnamon shots or you can go smaller or larger as you prefer.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Shots

By: Bella Bucchiotti
Cinnamon Toast Crunch shots are so good. Making these Fireball shooters is so easy at home. These cinnamon cereal shots are many with RumChata and Fireball so they pack a punch! You will love these cereal shooters!
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 1 2 ounces

Ingredients 

For the Cereal-Infused RumChata ( make enough for 6 shots)

  • 1 Cup cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • 1 Cup liqueur, I used RumChata

For the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Milk Shot:

  • ½ Teaspoon frosting, vanilla, for rim
  • 1 Tablespoon cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, coarsely crushed, for rim
  • ice
  • Ounces Cereal-Infused RumChata, see recipe above
  • ½ Ounce whisky, cinnamon, such as Fireball

Instructions 

For the Cereal-Infused RumChata (makes enough for 6 shots):

  • In an easy-to-pour container, such as a measuring cup, add Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Pour RumChata over top of the dry cereal, stirring to cover. Allow to soak for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to assure the floating pieces also get infused.
  • Using a strainer or cheesecloth, strain the infused RumChata into a container. Make sure to really squeeze the cereal to get out all of the alcohol that you can. You should end up with about 7 ounces of liquid. Refrigerate until ready to use.

For Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Milk Shot:

  • Spread vanilla frosting on the rim of your 2 ounce shot glass. Place the cereal pieces around the rim until it resembles a mosaic. Another quicker option is just to dip the frosting-covered rim into the crushed cereal pieces. Though it doesn’t look as perfect, if you’re making several shots, it could save you a lot of time.
  • Fill a shaker about halfway with ice. Add Cereal-Infused RumChata and cinnamon whisky. Shake for about 20 seconds or until chilled through. Pour into prepared shot glass.

However, they are really delicious and combine cinnamon, rum and cream along with a wonderful crunch.

    I have had these before and they taste just like CInnamon Toast Crunch, however yours are adorable with the cereal on the rim.
