It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere- Thank The Tasting Panel Edition

One of my high school friends works at The Tasting Panel magazine and consequently I've become part of her Facebook mailing group where every week they send out "drinks of the week" recipes, which is like a god send for me. And so here are the recipes they've sent out this month
(from January 4th edition)

Spiked Liquid S’More
In a warm, over-sized coffee mug, first rim the glass with crushed graham crackers, then pour in
1 to 1-1/2 oz. of your favorite spirit of choice, then fill the mug with hot chocolate. Garnish with melted marshmallow and a graham cracker on the side.

Barn Burner
In a small-medium Mason jar, throw in a stick of cinnamon, then add 11/2 oz. Southern Comfort and fill with hot apple cider. Garnish with a slice of lemon peel.

Hot Tub Heaven
In an Irish Coffee glass, pour in 3/4 oz. Hiram Walker peppermint schnapps, 3/4 oz. Amaretto di Amore, and 3/4 oz. Carolan’s Irish cream. Fill with hot coffee and garnish with whipped cream.
