  1. Looks delicious!!! I’ve never seen or heard of cinnamon apple syrup before. Is this something you make yourself? If so are you willing to share your recipe. Or is it available commercially? Thanks

    • Hi Bonnie!
      Cinnamon apple syrup is a syrup that we make in house but is very easy to do
      at home. We boil 3 cups of water and add 3 cups sugar, about 6 cinnamon
      sticks (depending on preference, you can add more or less) and one sliced
      apple. You let it simmer after boiling for about 20 minutes. Let cool before
      utilizing in any cocktail. Keep in mind this is for a large quantity! The
      same can be achieved with smaller ratios. Hope this helps!
