You first saw me use this syrup in my Orange Cinnamon Moscow Mules.
It’s so easy to make, and so delicious that I thought it need a place of its own.
It’s like adding a touch of fall or the holidays to anything it touches.
This syrup would be fabulous in an Italian Cream Soda.

How should I use this syrup?
I drizzled some into my morning coffee. It’s so good! And, if you wan to read my tips on how to make the perfect cup of coffee, hop over here.
This syrup would be delicious in an Iced Shaken Coffee as well. Take a look here on how to make it.
A little drizzle over some ice cream is awesome! I particularly like some on my Apple Pie Ice Cream.
It’s great in a cocktail. Especially ones with Bourbon or Whisky.
Or, simply add some to a club soda for a great mocktail that’s perfect all through later summer into the holidays!
Stir it into yogurt or oatmeal for more flavor in your breakfast.
Blend it into a smoothies or a milk shake.
Drizzle it on waffles or pancakes in the morning.
And, of course, drop it into a pumpkin spice latte for more cinnamon flavor.
Want more flavor?
If you’re looking for lots of cinnamon flavor, leave the cinnamon sticks in the syrup longer. While 10 minutes gets a nice flavor, three hours gets you even more flavor.
Makes a great gift
Oh and don’t forget, this makes a lovely homemade gift at the holidays! Just pour it in a pretty jar and tie a festive ribbon on.
