cinnamon brown sugar iced coffee

Sometime last autumn I got bored with my basic black coffee. I have been through every phase and back when it comes to coffee and these days I prefer it simple and on it’s own. But occaionally I crave something a little different. As a result I reached into the spice cabinet and pulled out the cinnamon. I figured I like cinnamon in tea, and with chocolate, why not give coffee a try? Turns out, it's a combination I really enjoy, especially with more bold flavored brews. For the remainder of the season I drank coffee with cinnamon each morning. You can therefore imagine my delight when I came upon a recipe for a cinnamon brown sugar coffee syrup a few weeks ago. I immediately pinned it and instead of making the syrup I added some cinnamon to my coffee and called it a day. 

While scrolling through my recipes the other day I was reminded of it and immediately got to work. It’s very quick and easy to make, it took maybe five minutes tops? The most challenging part (for me) was waiting for it to cool. I’m sure that it would taste lovely with a hot cup as well but since it’s summer, it’s been all about iced coffee over here.

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup water

How to
In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the cinnamon, sugar, and water. 
Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves and mixture begins to bubble. Once it's bubbling, reduce the heat to low and cook for two minutes. 

Let cool completely then add to iced coffee.

This recipe makes about six and a half tablespoons. I put one and a half in my coffee with some almond milk but I don't think there is a set amount, it's all to taste.

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!

  1. You know, I've been a long-time fan of caramel, but I have been getting tired of it lately. I never thought you could make your own syrup, though! Only on pinterest! It sound's very yummy for fall!
