CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH


CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH
Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey
RumChata

Reese's Puffs, Lucky Charms, Fruit Loops, Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch-- all good cereals, and great martinis. These cereal martinis have become very popular in the last few years, and for good reason. They are extremely delicious, and I can't imagine anyone who likes cereal not liking one. Though not really the best thing to drink in the morning (there are too many fabulous coffee and orange juice cocktails out there for that), these cocktails are perfect for when you are craving something sweet and creamy that will give you a buzz too.

I had one of those cravings while at Panini's Restaurant in Concord, Ohio, so I ordered a CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH martini. It was made with Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey,  a cinnamon-flavored whiskey that tastes a lot like the cinnamon-flavored candied hearts of my youth, and RumChata. RumChata, or "rum cream," is a white liqueur made from rice, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and sweet dairy cream. It's used in most of the cereal martinis I've seen. I hear it makes good French toast too.

The CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH martini, though a joy to sip, was not a dead ringer for the cereal. But it was a nice attempt. It tasted strongly of the Fireball Whiskey, and I'm now intrigued by this great-tasting whiskey. I'll have to try it in other cocktails. It did go well with the RumChata, but the combination just failed to taste as much like the cereal as the other cereal martinis do. Despite this, the CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH was a great cocktail and great time, and I'm thinking of opening a cereal martini bar.
