The only way you can make Cinnamon syrup is with Cinnamon sticks. We are using Ceylon Cinnamon sticks which has a subtle taste and a refined aroma. That makes it perfect for cocktails.
But you don't need to stop there. Use it as an Ice cream topping or drip on Pancakes, Waffles, French Toast, Fruit Salad, Apple Pie and more. Cinnamon helps cut the effect of the sugar. Imagine! A guilt free way to enjoy some sugar.
This is a light sweet syrup that has a lovely taste and aroma. Works amazingly well with cocktails and Vanilla Ice cream.

Some people add Vanilla. You can if you wish. But if you are using it in cocktails the addition of Vanilla might ruin the taste you want. You can always add Vanilla later to anything you make. Keep this one pure and simple.
Unlike ordinary Cassia Cinnamon you find in the stores, Ceylon Cinnamon has low Coumarin levels, so it won't damage your liver, especially if you are a regular Cinnamon tea drinker. Besides Ceylon Cinnamon is mild, yet slightly sweeter. It's not spicy like store bought Cassia Cinnamon, but has hints of cloves and citrus with wonderful subtle aroma.
Ceylon Cinnamon is subtle and adds to create a more complex flavors. You would never know there is Ceylon Cinnamon in this dish, unlike Cassia Cinnamon which tends to be harsh and immediately makes its presence felt and often ruins the recipe.
