Easter Cocktail: The Cinnamon Jelly Bean Splash

You’ve already filled the kids’ Easter baskets with goodies, now it’s time to treat yourself. Instead of letting all those extra cinnamon jelly beans sit around until next Easter, turn them into a delicious cinnamon liqueur. Steep them in white rum, add some fruit juice and you’ve got yourself a freakin’ amazing cocktail. Enjoy responsibly—it’s stronger than it tastes!

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
