How To: Make Apple-Cinnamon Syrup

Use this spiced syrup to make your cocktails more festive this holiday season.



One

Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, ½ cup of coarsely chopped dehydrated apple chips and ½ cinnamon stick in a saucepan. Bring all the ingredients to a boil while stirring continuously.

Two

Lower the heat and simmer until reduced. To test, dip a spoon into the mixture. The syrup should coat the spoon.
