Whisky – the preferential drink of Claire in Outlander. It can warm the belly as well as soul.  The quote below makes me think of the Outlander fandom reading Diana Gabaldon’s books.

“I know some who are constantly drunk on books as other men are drunk on whiskey.”
― H.L. Mencken

Many fans of the books enjoy having a dram of whisky as well as reading.  Just as there are many books in the Outlander series, there are many types of whisky, one being Fireball Whisky, which is so versatile! Below is a simple and delicious concoction made with this tasty liquor.

“There is no bad whiskey. There are only some whiskeys that aren’t as good as others.”
― Raymond Chandler

Trying a variety of whisky-based drinks can be quite interesting. The internet can be used to find ways of mixing this adaptable nectar of the gods.

One of my favorite drinks is “Hot Pepper.”  It combines my favorite soda, Dr. Pepper, with the tasty cinnamon whisky, Fireball.

The recipe (along with many other Fireball recipes) can be found at www.fireballwhisky.com

Really, all you have to do is fill a glass with ice and one part Fireball Whisky.  Top it off with 3 parts of Dr. Pepper. There you go- easy!

“Oooooo,” I said, sighing, and taking another sip. I closed my eyes, the better to appreciate it. An Irishman of my acquaintance had once assured me that very good whisky could raise the dead. I wasn’t disposed to argue the point.

—Claire Fraser
