Coffee Cinnamon Rum Cocktail

Cinnamon Coffee Cocktail Recipe

Cheers to the holiday season…and holiday cocktails!

I LOVE dessert cocktails, and coffee, and cinnamon… So I thought I would share one of my favorite drinks to make. I’ve also included the easy recipe for cinnamon syrup also here on the blog. It’s light on the tummy, so serving it as an after-dinner cocktail is most suitable. Even better is that you can put those damn mimosas away; at least, just this once! Try this at your next quarantine brunch. But do you always need a specific reason to indulge?

It comes together quickly, so no need to plan too far ahead. Make the coffee mixture anywhere from days ahead to 30 minutes before you plan to drink up.
