    1 cup Water, ⅔ cup White sugar, ⅓ cup Demerara sugar
  • Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Add cinnamon sticks to the saucepan and reduce the heat.
    5 Cinnamon sticks
  • Cover the saucepan and let the mix simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Then remove the saucepan from the heat, cover the syrup, and let it cool down.
  • Ideally, let the mix infuse for 6 hours or even more. If you're in a rush, you can make it one hour only. But that's the absolute minimum. And be aware that the longer you let the cinnamon infuse, the better the results will be.
  • Finally, remove cinnamon sticks and stir in the vanilla extract before bottling.

  • For that extra kick of cinnamon, add one or two cinnamon sticks to your syrup bottle.
