Notes on the Drink Recipe
If you’ve never tried Amoretti Premium Cinnamon Syrup before, then this recipe is a fantastic introduction, if we do say so ourselves. Our cinnamon drink syrup has many uses – in cocktails, coffee, tea, and more. Below are a few of our favorite recipes that call for our cinnamon drink syrup.
- Cinnamon and Butterscotch Iced Latte: The title kind of says it all here. Cinnamon, butterscotch, and cool, sweet coffee!
- Cinnamon Brandy Latte: What could make cinnamon and coffee better? Oh, maybe just a touch of Amoretti Premium Brandy Syrup.
- Amoretti Pomander Latte: While we’re on the latte train of thought, we have to include our Pomander Latte, a holiday favorite. Be sure to check out this incredible coffee drink!
About That Egg…
Also, you might be wondering, can I really put a whole egg into a cocktail? Did they mean just the egg white? Nope, that’s no typo. You can – and should – use the entire egg for this cocktail recipe. Now, we know that might not be all too appealing for the faint of heart. However, if you’re using high quality eggs – and not just buying whatever’s cheapest at the grocery store – then you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.
Using the whole egg allows for the egg flavor to come out. In most “eggy” cocktails, only the whites are used, which is done for texture – not flavor. By adding the whole egg, on the other hand, you get the egg texture and flavor. Be adventurous; give it a try!
