Not surprisingly, the cinnamon simple syrup was really simple to make. Just boil some cinnamon sticks in water for 10 minutes and then add sugar, cook until dissolved. I found the recipe here on FoodNetwork.com. It also makes your kitchen smell super yummy.

The Apple Crisp
(my version adapted from Huff. Post)
(This is not a low-FODMAP recipe)
4 oz. apple cider
1 oz. spiced rum (such as Captain Morgan)
1/2 oz. cinnamon simple syrup
cinnamon stick for garnish
Mix in a rocks glass with ice, or shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. To make for a crowd, replace the ounces with cups (i.e. 4 cups apple cider, 1 cup spiced rum, 1/2 cup simple cinnamon syrup), mix in a pitcher and chill. Garnish with cinnamon sticks.
