As time passes, we are reaching the goal of Fall weather and finally getting away from Summer heat. However, we may have to wait a bit until it cools down to what I consider acceptable temperatures (like 80 degrees in the afternoon). At least we have the means to cool off several ways including drink mixing. So take note, gather the ingredients, and let us commence the drink mixing...for the purpose of cooling off of course...

1 oz Cinnamon Whiskey
1 oz Vanilla Vodka

All, if not most, of these drink ingredients can be found at your local liquor store. Townsquare Media and KIXS 108 do not condone underage drinking and encourage you to drink responsibly. Have a safe and fun weekend!
