I was thinking about making some homemade "Hot Damn", bottling it, and giving it away as holiday gifts this year. I've looked all over the Internet and haven't found a recipe. Does anyone have a good cinnamon liquor recipe here?  Smiley

Here's the best recipe that I could find for cinnamon liqueur.

Cinnamon liqueur

2 Cinnamon sticks
4 whole cloves
2 teaspoon Ground coriander seed
2 cups Vodka
1 cup Brandy
1 cup Sugar syrup (simple syrup)

Steep all spices in alcohol for 2 weeks. Strain and filter until clear and add sugar syrup to taste. Let stand 1 week and its ready to serve.

Makes 2 pints

Simple syrup recipe

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Bring sugar and water to simmer in small saucepan over medium heat and cook until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Transfer syrup to airtight container and refrigerate until needed.

Hope this helps

you might be able to improvise. i've made homemade liquors by soaking whatever flavor you want - nuts, orange peels, mint leaves, etc - in vodka for a few weeks and then adding simple syrup to taste. i've had hot damn and i'm pretty sure it is just a cinnamon flavor, with no other spices. maybe just soak cinnamon sticks in vodka until the flavor is strong enough (cinnamon sticks are pretty cheap, you can get a huge bag of them in the ethnic section of most large grocery stores) and then adding a simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, heated together until sugar dissolves and then cooled) until it is sweet enough. you might want to add some red food coloring after you get the flavor right and then package it in pretty bottles.
