Add the Wild Turkey and cinnamon schnapps to a shaker full of ice and shake until cold.
Pour into rimmed glass and top with Sarsaparilla or root beer.


  1. I think I have an avatar!!! Let’s see (random comment from you technologically unsavvy friend)

    • CRAP! Didn’t work. I quit! You can delete these comments if ya’ want.

    • I’m assuming you didn’t give it a minute? Everything’s working A-OK now, silly woman. And of course I’m not going to delete this. What would I giggle at?

  2. True Grit was one my mom’s favorite movies, therefore I saw it many times growing up. Great movie.

    Not sure she’ll go for a rooster though. . . I might.

  3. You like how I used the pic w/ Tucker’s foot in the background, right??
