Orange-Cinnamon Cocktail


Just a quick update to share with you this too-good-to-keep-to-myself cocktail recipe. It's made with tequila reposado but any tequila or even a dark rum would work just fine. I made a cinnamon and orange peel syrup which gives this cocktail a much more deep orange flavor. The woody tones of cinnamon, sneaking out at the end of each sip,  complements this drink harmoniously.  Needed a cocktail recipe for the weekend? Look no more. Cheers! 

Happy Weekend! 


Ingredients:

For the syrup

1 cup of water
 ¼ cup orange juice
1 cup sugar 
the peel of 1 orange
1 large cinnamon stick

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, and bring it to a boil. Boil it until the sugar has dissolved. Turn the heat off and let the syrup cool completely. Once cooled, strain the syrup, cover it  and keep it in the fridge until needed. 

To assemble:

½ cup orange juice 
2 oz tequila
2 tbsp syrup
ice cubes

In a cocktail shaker (or a mason jar :) add all the ingredients and shake well. Strain it over a glass. 
Note: This recipe makes 2 drinks but you will have enough syrup to make 4 or 5 more just double the amounts.
