I fear sounding too repetitive, but I was giddy with excitement when I opened my inbox early this week and saw Colleen Graham’s About.com Cocktail Newsletter. In it, she announced October’s cocktail contest which – as you can deduce from the title of this post – is Cinnamon!
“Your drink can use fresh cinnamon, cinnamon liqueurs, infusions, syrups, anything with cinnamon,” according to Colleen’s contest rules. This is the perfect opportunity to familiarize yourself with Original Cinn, the new 90-proof cinnamon schnapps from Hiram Walker whose praises I’ve been singing of late.
Original Cinn has a versatile amount of uses: it is great in cocktails and hot drinks, perfect for shots, and also is delicious with desserts (pour a little bit atop some vanilla ice cream, I promise you won’t be disappointed).
The best part of the cocktail contest is that it is open to everyone – from beginners to mixologists. So grab a bottle o’ cinn (it’s so reasonably priced at around $10 for a 750 ml) and stir up that perfect fall-flavored cocktail. Here is where you can enter the contest.
