I thought we would carry on the theme of making syrups this week. Lets throw it out there and call it ‘Syrup Week‘, I will include all the syrup recipes at the end of the week on our Facebook page in a tidy little note so you can always pop on there and take a look (or you can stay on here of course). Well, today we’ve opted for the cinnamon syrup. A spicy syrup that provides beautiful aromas to your cocktail and because it is not the most common ingredient to find on the shelf, you will be loving this new addition to your cocktails.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 cinnamon sticks
Add all the ingredients into a pan and bring the mixture to the boil, whilst stirring. Once you see the syrup starting to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5-8 minutes. Make sure you give it a stir every so often. Once all the sugar has completely dissolved and 5-8 minutes have passed, take the pan off the heat and allow to cool. Pour the syrup (including the cinnamon sticks) into a container. I prefer to use one of my trust glass bottles with the swing caps. Then stow the syrup away in the fridge ready for your cocktails.
The Cocktail Chronicles provides a great take on the classic Daiquiri – Boukman Daiquiri
I will leave that recipe in your capable hands and hope you enjoy many of cocktails using it.
