Cinnamon Simple Syrup Recipe


Cinnamon simple syrup

Cinnamon Simple Syrup

The subtle flavors of cinnamon can be added to a number of cocktails to enhance and compliment other flavors in the drink. While some cocktails, such as the UK Sour, Poinsettia Punch, and Zombie Punch specifically call for this syrup, it can also be used in other drinks to bring a light warmth to a drink.

Think of using this syrup in place of plain simple syrup in cocktails with flavors that compliment cinnamon. Some examples include modern drinks like Dusk in Eden and the Designated Appletini, or to reinvigorate classics such as Fish House Punch and a Fancy Whiskey. I always have this in stock to sweeten my coffee as well.
