DIY - Cinnamon Vodka

You all know that I am NO longer allowed to drink Fireball, right?  Apparently, if I drink it too late in the night, I tend to drink MORE and then I get all pukey ... not a good thing by any one's standards, trust me.  The thought of Fireball makes me shudder now.

Any way.

Vodka, on the other hand ... well, that certainly got Hubby's attention ... and then we were thinking, ahhh, Indiana in the winter ... how comforting! Maybe? I don't know.  All I DO know is that I made this in a small batch (Hubby wanted a whole bottle's worth!) to make a apple cider grown up drink and I'm hooked now!  I do wish I had made a double batch as this lasted one evening!



It's easy to make and remember, the longer you let it sit, the hotter it will be!

1 cup vodka (seriously, I always say go with a better quality when it comes to booze)
1 cinnamon stick (courtesy of Aldis!)
1 tsp sugar

Put the vodka in a pint size canning jar. Add the cinnamon stick and sugar. Put the lid on it and stash in the cabinet. Allow to sit for 24 hours ... or longer. Just remember that it will get hotter as time goes on.

The sugar will dissolve within an hour or so and the vodka will turn colors as the cinnamon is infused ... after 24 hours, stick the jar in the freezer so it's nice and chilly before drinking.

I'm thinking this just might be on my list of DIY Christmas gifts to give the adults in my life ... especially THOSE who love and still can drink Fireball ... I will convert them to a less sugar-loaded shot with no adverse side effects (as of yet!).

I am going to make a double batch this week before the girls night ... I've got some apple cider that taste especially yummy with this added!

  1. My first thought was Christmas gifts! I've never made an infused alcohol before. This is dangerously easy. Thanks for sharing!
