Introduction: Cinnamon Simple Syrup

This is my first instructable! :) I enjoy mixing drinks and began flavoring/experimenting while attending bar in college.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

4 cups Sugar
4 cups water
1/2 tsp Cinnamon Oil
3 Cinnamon Sticks

Cinnamon oil can be found in the candy section of your local craft store.

Step 2: Let's Make Syrup!

Combine the sugar, water and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved stir in cinnamon oil.

Step 3: Cool!!!

Remove from the heat, cover, and let cool. Store in the refrigerator.
