Josh here. I know I’m usually not the one to bring you recipes, but I thought it would be fun to write something for the first time in a while. This past Valentine’s Day, we went to a fancy-ish place that happens to have a variety of interesting cocktails, including a few specialty ones for a week or so at a time. They had one that caught my eye, and after trying it, I decided we had to try our best to replicate it at home.
It’s no surprise that something with whiskey (my liquor of choice), cinnamon, and a sweet wine, grabbed my attention. And I’m so glad I took a chance on something a little out of my comfort zone! This is a drink that’s sweet, but not cloyingly so, and while not as strong as some others, it certainly does its job!
If you try this out, and you happen to have some (short) cinnamon sticks around, try stirring with one and leaving it in. The extra, concentrated cinnamon can be a delicious addition, but I wouldn’t recommend the amount of syrup you’d need to achieve the same thing! Well, unless you’re like me and you could probably enjoy eating sugar cubes for a snack, in which case go for it.
