Last week I posted a Passover cake that used a Honey Cinnamon Syrup. This wonderful syrup itself  is a mighty force that has many uses. You can apply it to ice cream, adorn pound cake, or apply to a warm corn muffin for breakfast.

Or, you can drink it. Put 3 ounces of ginger ale, 2 ounces of dark tequila, and 1 ounce of this syrup in a blender. Add ice, whirl away, and then enjoy. The combination of tequila, honey, and cinnamon offers you a modest jolt. Less than 8 on the Richter scale, but still formidable.


Honey Cinnamon Syrup

Yield: 1/2 cup


  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a medium saucepan, combine the ingredients. Heat to dissolve the sugar and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, until the mixture becomes syrupy. Cool well.

Stored in a closed container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Warm before using.
