Liquor Snob Tempted by Original Cinn
The folks at Hiram Walker sent us a bottle of their Original Cinn cinnamon schnapps this week, and we have to say we're tempted. Our initial sip gave us a much mellower, softer cinnamon flavor than the "atomic hot ball" vibe we've gotten from other products, and we can see it as much more of a cocktail ingredient than a "DUDE LET'S DO SHOTS." Anybody have ideas for cocktails to mix with a cinnamon base - we're thinking we have to do something apple (in honor of fall and apple pie, as well as a play on the name) but that's as far as we've gotten.
We liked how Original Cinn came with a "pride" tag attached to the neck of the bottle, and it was accompanied by the six other cardinal sins, from gluttony to sloth (our pic didn't come out well so check out this one).
As for the Cinn itself, it comes in at 90 proof and ten bucks for a 750ML bottle, which is much more reasonable than certain cinnamon drinks with bits of gold in them. We're fans of the Walker brand for being reasonably priced and good alternatives to spendier brands - if you're not familiar, learn more about them at the Hiram Walker website.

Oooh, Cinna-nog...that's genius. Tried it out again a little bit ago - thinking it might have a place in a bowl of oatmeal too. Err, I mean an oatmeal-themed shot.
