This Orange and Cinnamon Gin Recipe Is a Sweet Warming Delight

orange and cinnamon gin recipe

There aren’t many combinations more festive sounding than orange and cinnamon. They are perfect flavour partners and to get us through the darker nights we’ve decided to share an orange and cinnamon gin recipe.

Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. As such you’ll find it in spiced gin but unlike other spices it has a sweet flavour rather than a heat.

This orange and cinnamon gin recipe is so simple to make, will taste deliciously sweet and unlike some homemade gin it doesn’t take long to infuse and be ready to serve.
