In my previous post, as part of the Two Little Chefettes’ Cooking Challenge, I published a recipe for Brown Sugar Cinnamon Syrup. One way to use this syrup is in cocktails and mocktails in place of plain simple syrup. Brown Sugar Cinnamon Syrup imparts rich cinnamon and caramel flavors to drinks. The Happy Reindeer Daiquiri is an excellent example. Cheers! Happy Holidays!
Happy Reindeer Daiquiri
2 oz. rum (or apple juice, for an alcohol-free drink)
1 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 – 1 oz. brown sugar cinnamon syrup, or to taste (recipe)
Pour rum, lime juice, and brown sugar cinnamon syrup into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a coupe or martini style cocktail glass. Garnish with Maraschino cherry and cinnamon stick. Serve immediately.
