This is one of those drinks that no matter how much caffiene is in the coffee, I will have to take a nap afterwards. Something about the warm cinnamon-y goodness makes me fall right asleep!
6-8 ounces strong brewed coffee
6 ounces heated milk
2-4 Tbsp cinnamon simple syrup, to taste (recipe follows)
cinnamon for sprinkling
In a large mug, mix together the coffee, milk, and cinnamon syrup. Top with whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon. Enjoy. Repeat if necessary. ;)
Cinnamon Simple Syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup golden brown sugar
6 inches of cinnamon stick, broken into small pieces
1 cup water
Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and let boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Strain out cinnamon pieces and store, covered, in the refrigerator.
