Cinnamon always does it for me, especially when it’s incorporated in a stiff cocktail.
The beauty of cinnamon cocktails is that they can be made sweet or a bit spicy, served warm or cold.
It’s a versatile spice that just fits the Fall weather perfectly.
So, with Autumn approaching, I recommend taking a look at this list of what I consider to be the absolute best cinnamon cocktails to make this season.
