Happy Reindeer Daiquiri

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!
