- 4 oz Apple Cider
- 1 tsp Cinnamon Simple Syrup (recipe to follow)
- 2 Tbs Lemon Juice
- 1.5 oz local Rum (We like Green Head or Golden Salt Marsh Rum by Old Ipswich)
- Cinnamon Sticks & Lemon Wheels for Garnish
Cinnamon Simple Syrup
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 5 cinnamon sticks
For the Cinnamon Simple Syrup:
- Make Cinnamon Simple Syrup by combining the granulated sugar with 1 cup water in a small pot over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer until sugar has completely dissolved, about 2 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and add the cinnamon sticks. Let the cinnamon infuse in the hot simple syrup for 30 minutes while it cools. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
For the Cocktail:
- In a tumbler, combine the apple cider, cinnamon simple syrup, lemon juice (more or less to taste), and rum.
- Serve over ice with a lemon wheel and extra stick of cinnamon.
