Yes. The title of this post is super weird, I know.

The Inspiration

Last week, my roommate, Brendan Byrne, found a book at Goodwill called The Complete Bartender. He had tried out a few recipes from the book and then I told him to make something up. He had been wishing for that fall feel for a bit longer, hoping that the snow wouldn’t come just yet. Well, he made up what’s called the “Byrney Baby” and it was so delicious I had to share it with you guys.

I hope you like it as much as we do.

The Recipe

This recipe is for one drink. Feel free to double if making for more than one person. 

(2) shots of bourbon/whiskey (any kind will do) 

(1) tablespoon honey 

(1) dash of cinnamon or a cinnamon stick if you’ve got a whole one

(1/3) cup of apple cider 

(1) handful of ice

(1) can of Sprite or 7up

Step One

Combine all of the ingredients except for soda pop into a shaker. Shake until combine evenly.


It’s dark in there. But believe me, everything is in there. 


Step Two

Pour into pint glass.

Step Three

Top off with soda pop.


Step Four


The Verdict

Isn’t it kinda cool that it looks like a beer? IT’S NOT!

I can tell you that I have had three Byrney Babies in the last three days. They’re not only delicious, but they’re a hit with everyone that tries one.

Actual Cheers!
