Recipe: Iced Cinnamon Drink
2 quarts water – divided use 4 (5-inch) cinnamon sticksAdditional 1/2 gallon waterSugar to taste
Boil one quart of water. As soon as waterbegins to boil, add the cinnamon sticks. Simmer for 15 to 20minutes and then immediately add remaining one quart of coldwater and remove from heat.
Leave cinnamon sticks in and allow tocool to room temperature. This is the cinnamon drink concentrate.
To Serve: For the entire amount of concentrate,I usually add an additional half gallon of COLD water and sweetenwith sugar to taste, and serve over ice. Simple and very refreshing- the PERFECT drink on a hot day, especially if your favoriteflavor is cinnamon (it’s mine). I fell in love with this flavoreddrink when I was in Turkey – you could buy a powdered drink mixthere for it, but I can’t find anything like it here in the USA,so this is my best solution to the same thing!
Tip: If you like prefer a stronger flavoredbeverage, dilute with less water, for milder flavor add morewater.
Makes 1 gallon or 16 (8-ounce) servings.
