A spirited toast to all things alcoholic!  By Leslie Dinaberg

Fall is officially here, and Pumpkin Spice isn’t the only flavor that’s HOT this season. There’s a new cinnamon vodka out called HEEET, which is terrific for sipping.

Think Fireball for grown-ups. Combining all natural ingredients with vodka and cinnamon is kind of brilliant idea, if you think about it.

Drink it straight up for a kick, combine it with tonic, or mix it with Coke for a spicy twist on an old favorite.

We also liked the Tropical Heeet.

Here’s the recipe, courtesy the HEEET folks:

  • 4oz Pineapple Juice 
  • 11/2 oz HEEET 
  • 1 oz Ginger Ale 
  • Splash of grenadine 
  • Garnish with a slice of pineapple

I liked it on the rocks, but it was also tasty straight up.

HEEET retails for $24.99, and available to purchase at

Check it out and let us know what you think.
