With homemade syrup, bourbon, & muddled blood orange, this Cinnamon Spiced Old Fashioned Cocktail will keep you (and your company) cozy on even the chilliest days.
The cocktail recipe makes two drinks, and the syrup recipes makes enough for one pint of syrup, which will keep in the fridge for 4-6 weeks.
Combine the sugar and water in a small sauce pan and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the cinnamon stick. Let the mixture simmer for 10 minutes, until the sugar is completely dissolved and the syrup has thickened slightly.
Remove from heat, leaving the cinnamon stick to seep, and allow to cool. Transfer the syrup and cinnamon stick to a sterile jar or bottle and store in the fridge for 4-6 weeks.
