Cinnamon syrup

Cinnamon syrup is an essential component of classical tiki drinks, and it’s nice to have on hand for hot toddies. It’s great on pancakes, too!

You can buy it ready-made, but it’s so easy to make your own and tweak it to your preferences. Start with a half-and-half mix of white and brown sugar, and add an equal amount of water. Toss in a few cinnamon sticks and a healthy pinch of ground cinnamon.

Simmer the mixture for about 15 minutes, then remove from heat and discard the cinnamon sticks. You can add a little vanilla extract now, if you like. Let it cool, and pour it into a jar or bottle. You can keep it in your fridge for several weeks.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
