Homemade Cinnamon Whiskey

February 17, 2016

 Things that I find I’m am drawn to in the winter time; Crackling of a Fire, Cinnamon, Whiskey… Wait, we might as well put cinnamon and whiskey together!  


About the Cinnamon Whiskey:

Sweet and cinnamon. Who doesn’t like that combination? Well, at least for this one we are going to assume we all do. Even if you don’t like the “Ball of Fire” that is the predominant leader currently on the market. I feel strong that you would like this. 

Do shots of it. Use it for ingredients in cocktails, or even food!!!   

Ingredients For the Cinnamon Whiskey:

For this batch we used:

  •  – 4 Sticks of Cinnamon
  •  – 1 Liter of Water
  •  – 1 Vanilla Bean 
  •  – 3 Cups White Sugar
  •  – 1 Cup Brown Sugar 

How to Make the Cinnamon Whiskey: 

1. Add Cinnamon Stick vanilla bean to a pot

2. Add the 1 liter of water   

3. Let bring to a boil then reduce heat an leave for 1 hour 

4. I like to leave in till the Cinnamon Sticks open up. 


5. Strain out and let cool. 

6. Stir in 80/20 White Sugar to Brown Sugar. I used a 1 liter mason jar packed with 800 ml white sugar and 200 ml brown. 

7. Add whiskey to taste. *For mine I use 1 liter of 100 proof Whiskey for a liquor that’s 50 proof. And put back in one of the used cinnamon sticks


Spirits used in the Cinnamon Whiskey

And Rum… glorious Rum! One of the best roommate I ever had, had a love affair with Captain Morgan. Once on a glorious occasion, I saw him drink the largest Rum and Coke I have ever seen out of a hotel room trash can let me just say it was an interesting night.
