Making simple syrups is like it says in the title: simple! I like playing around with different herbs and spices to make interesting simple syrups that can be stored in your fridge for weeks, waiting for the next cocktail inspiration. I have made a sage simple syrup that I have posted in the past where I used to make a gin cocktail.
This cinnamon simple syrup is just as simple as any other simple syrup and you end up with a spicy syrup that would be great for a hot toddy, a spin on an old fashioned or a cinnamon-scotch sour. Whip up a batch today and impress your friends with fancy cocktails the next time you have a dinner party!
Cinnamon Simple Syrup
This recipe isn’t my own and I can’t really give credit to anyone specific because it’s just a basic recipe that isn’t really owned by one person. I will be inventing some interesting cocktails using this recipe in the future, so watch for those coming soon!
To make any simple syrup, you start with equal parts water and white sugar. For this batch I used 1 cup water to 1 cup sugar.
Put the sugar and water into a pot on the stove and bring to a boil and continue to simmer until the sugar completely dissolves.
Add in the cinnamon sticks and bring back to a boil.
Remove pot from oven and let cool. Once cooled, pour into a bottle or jar and store in the fridge for up to one month. That’s it! It’s that simple! Now go make some fun cocktails! Or wait for me to post my interesting creations!
