This Cinnamon Simple Syrup is an easy and delicious way to add some flavor to your favorite drinks or cocktails!
I love making new and exciting cocktails, especially around the holiday season.
This Cinnamon Simple Syrup is a great way to bring warmth and flavor to your fall cocktails!
One of my favorite ways to use this homemade simple syrup is in a Cinnamon Apple Old Fashioned Cocktail!
It is the perfect cocktail for the holidays, full of warm spices and flavors, plus incredibly simple to make.
Use this syrup with any of your favorite drinks or cocktails that use a simple syrup for some extra flavor.
I prefer to use cinnamon sticks in this homemade simple syrup recipe.
The cinnamon sticks do a great job of infusing into the syrup without leaving much sediment behind.
Plus leaving the stick in the finished syrup makes it pretty as well, and easy to identify.
If you do not have cinnamon sticks, you can swap out the two sticks with one teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
All spices lose some of their flavor over time, so if your spices are older than 6 months, you may want to increase the cinnamon sticks or ground cinnamon just a little to make up for it.
Storing Cinnamon Simple Syrup
This syrup can be stored in a small container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
I like to use smaller glass bottles or storage containers that are easy to dip into when I need a teaspoon or two.
This recipe makes just over one cup of syrup.
Since a little goes a long way, and drink recipes typically use less than a Tablespoon at a time, you will have plenty of syrup for the holidays!
Unless you go through it as often as we do!
- 2 cinnamon sticks (or 1 teaspoon ground)

- Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes.
