Frozen Tundra Drink Recipe Wins Key Largo Chamber Contest

When I first read "Flager's Rusty Spike" drink recipe, which recently won the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce's 30th Annual Cookoff as best winter/fall friendly drink, I had to laugh.

"Flager's Rusty Spike"

This is one drink that would taste a lot better while drinking it from an old styrofoam cup or from a flask during:
  1. A Green Bay Packer game in the winter.
  2. Ice Fishing on Lake Minnetonka.
  3. Watching a winter parade in downtown Minneapolis in the sub-artic winter temperatures with no socks on.   (Like I did on my 1st date with my wife...)  
I have only listed few, but could go on and on. Almost all true born and raised Wisconsites and Minnesotans have been using the ingredients in this drink recipe to ease the pain of cabin fever brought on each winter for years, maybe even centuries (laughing).

If you are searching for drink recipes this holiday or find yourself at an outdoor festival in the ice cold, make the most of it and give this one a try.  I can almost guarantee you one heck of a holiday party when you serve this cocktail to your guests.  

1 oz Warm Apple Cider
1 oz Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps
1 oz Laird’s Applejack Brandy
Brown Cinnamon Sugar

Combine apple cider, Goldschlager Cinnamon Schnapps, and Laird’s Applejack Brandy in a glass. Stir ingredients and then add brown cinnamon sugar as a garnish.

Have a Happy Thanksgivng and see you all after the holiday weekend with some big news!
