coming up on winter, time for Cinnamon Sippin' Whiskey!

Postby ZombieSoldier » Sun Oct 21, 2012 3:37 pm

So every winter that I am not deployed, I make a special drink for family and friends. It is called cinnamon sippin' whiskey. If you have never had it, its AMAZING cold weather warm me up drink.

here is how it is done!

1 Liter Bottle of your favorite whiskey (cheaper the better, no reason to use an expensive whiskey, i use Evan Williams)

1 Cup of Sugar ¾ Cup of Water

Cinnamon Sticks (Not the powder, you want the sticks)

Pinch of ground cloves

1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

In a sauce pan add 1 cup of sugar, ¾ cup of water and one or two cinnamon sticks (two if you like cinnamon), pinch of ground cloves, and vanilla extract. Simmer this entire potion (don’t let it boil over or it will harden quickly), keep stirring slowly, till it becomes a thick syrup. You can tell if it is the right thickness, if you take a piece of string and when you dunk it in the syrup, it sticks to the string, covering it (I find it is usually around 20 –30 minutes for it to get the right consistency).

Remove from the heat and pour in the whiskey till you fill the pan, stirring while you do so will help to mix the syrup and whiskey. Continue to heat on low heat (DO NOT BOIL), and continue to stir this potion till the syrup and whiskey are totally mixed together. Set it aside and let it cool. (You can drink it hot. I do in the winter, when i get back from hunting.)

Image

Pour back into the bottle and place 2 fresh cinnamon sticks, as well as the sticks you used to cook with, in the bottle Drink it hot, cold or room temperature. It doesn’t matter. It just tastes great all the time. (best is if you let it sit overnight, so the full flavor of the cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla combine) But be warned. It is addicting. It is very easy to drink. And it will sneak up on you.

Enjoy this one everyone!

I was going to pick up a bottle Evan Williams this weekend anyway , so I think I'll buy two. This sounds good.
At least I'm enjoying the ride!

Around here, Evan Williams and Wild Turkey both make a Honey Bourbon, and Evan Williams also makes a Cinnamon Bourbon. My son created a drink he called a "Flaming Honeybee", and makes it with equal parts of Honey Bourbon and Cinnamon Bourbon and then fill the glass with Coke. Smoooooth, but sneaky.8)
