17 Best Cinnamon Cocktails for Fall and Beyond

These cinnamon cocktails are perfect any time of year!

Trust me, these cinnamon cocktails will be your new favorites.

From spiced whiskey sours to cozy mimosas, this list has it all.

If you’re looking for something scrumptious to sip on with a little bit of warm spice, look no further.

These sinful cinnamon cocktails will certainly hit the spot!

1. Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour

A whiskey sour is a fabulous drink any way you mix it.

But this whiskey sour takes that flavor to a whole new level!

Rather than simple syrup, this cocktail is sweetened with maple syrup.

That caramel-like, subtle sweetness paired with lemon and ground cinnamon? Pure joy!

Oh, and they’re so easy to make, too! Just add all of the ingredients to a shaker, and pour everything over ice.

There are no fancy garnishes needed when the drink is this good!

2. Cinnamon Tequila Sour

As much as I love a good margarita, this tequila sour has taken my heart.

It has the elements of a whiskey sour with the warmth of a good tequila. What’s not to love?

In this recipe, you need to add egg whites to get a nice foam on the top of your drink.

Shake it up with tequila, lemon juice, simple syrup, and cinnamon.

You can totally omit the egg whites if you want, but the frothy texture is worth it! 

3. Apple Pie Cinnamon Cocktail

What’s better than your favorite dessert in a sweet cocktail? Not much, if you ask me!

Apple pie might be referred to as a fall dessert, but this is year-round bliss in my book.

With a healthy dose of apple cider, this isn’t a terribly boozy drink.

Though with a splash of vanilla vodka and Fireball, it might just be hidden.

Garnish this tasty drink with an apple slice for a beautiful presentation. Sip responsibly!

4. Cinnamon Toast Cocktail

Okay, don’t let this name trick you. There’s no toast in this cocktail.

But it definitely gives off some warm French toast vibes if you make it just right.

This drink sticks to the classics with cinnamon schnapps rather than cinnamon whiskey.

Just shake that up with a bit of apple cider and it’s sipping time!

If you like, rim your cocktail glass with some cinnamon sugar. It adds a delicious finish to this easy drink!

5. Cinnamon Spiced Old-Fashioned

This old-fashioned has a new twist!

A little bit of cinnamon and blood orange is just what the old-fashioned needs to be a “new-fashioned” drink!

With a couple of dashes of orange bitters, bourbon, cinnamon simple syrup, and bourbon, this drink comes to life.

Of course, start by muddling the blood-orange peels in your shaker.

Once those bright oils are released, add in the remaining ingredients and shake it until chilled.

Pour it over ice, and garnish it with a cinnamon stick and orange peel. It’s simple, sweet, and scrumptious. 

6. Cinnamon Bourbon Fizz

If the name doesn’t catch your eye, I don’t know what else to tell you.

Scrumptious cinnamon syrup, bourbon, and a splash of sparkling water make the perfect drink.

The star of this cocktail is the homemade cinnamon syrup.

It’s made by simmering honey, rosemary, and cinnamon sticks until it’s thick and sweet.

Add that tasty syrup to a glass with bourbon, Aperol, lemon juice, and bitters, and swirl.

Finish it off with a splash of sparkling water to get that “fizz” in every sip. 

7. Cinnamon White Russian

Cinnamon is the perfect addition to the creamy coffee flavors in this classic cocktail.

With a homemade cinnamon syrup and a rimmed glass, this drink goes down easy.

Rim each glass with cinnamon sugar, and pour in the creamy vodka and Kaluha mixture. 

8. Spiced Cinnamon Bourbon Hot Toddy

After a long day, nothing cures the sniffles and tired eyes like a hot toddy.

This spiced hot toddy is the perfect recipe to follow to cure the winter blues, too!

A little lemon tart and a little cinnamon and chili spiced syrup is perfect for a hot bourbon drink.

Once you make the simple syrup, hang on to it for a sweet and spicy kick! 

This recipe doesn’t call for hot tea, but feel free to substitute for a fuller flavor.

Garnish it with a cinnamon stick and a lemon wedge before serving. 

9. Cinnamon Spice Moscow Mule

Okay, we’ve all heard of the classic Moscow Mule. But how about a cinnamon-spiced mule>

It all starts by whipping up some cinnamon simple syrup with brown sugar, water, and cinnamon sticks.

While you’re at it, make up a big batch and keep it in the fridge for the future!

Swirl together with vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer in a copper mug.

Add in a slice of lime and a cinnamon stick for garnish before serving.

10. Snickerdoodle Martini

If I told you snickerdoodles weren’t my favorite cookie, I’d be lying.

There’s just something about that cinnamon and sugar combination I can’t resist!

This creamy snickerdoodle is one for the books.

With Disaronno, Goldschlager, vodka, and cream, it’s one stiff martini.

The cinnamon sugar rim is totally optional but highly recommended. 

11. Christmas Manhattan Cocktail

Cinnamon provides the perfect twist for a classic Manhattan cocktail.

This whiskey cocktail is perfectly spiced, sweet, and boozy!

To start this cocktail, you need to mull vermouth for 24 hours before mixing it up.

Then, add rye whiskey, pecan liqueur, and spiced syrup to a glass.

You want to combine the ingredients over ice, then pour them into a chilled glass.

Enjoy it while it’s nice and cold! 

12. Boozy Cinnamon Eggnog Cocktail

The holidays can’t escape me without indulging in sweet and creamy eggnog.

This creamy cocktail is even better than eggnog on its own for adult festivities!

This boozy holiday beverage only requires three ingredients!

Rum, eggnog, and a sprinkle of cinnamon are all you need for this cocktail.

Shake it up and serve in a scotch glass over ice. It’s perfect for sipping a sweet drink over the holidays.

13. Ultimate Holiday Sangria

Keep your holidays happy with a sangria like this, and keep a glass for you, too!

Or maybe two for some extra festive feasting.

So what makes this sangria the ultimate drink?

Well, a collection of agave, Grand Mariner, fresh fruit, and cinnamon, of course!

Swirl all that deliciousness in a pitcher and top it with ginger ale before serving.

Bubbly, spiced, and fruity. What’s not to love?

14. Mulled Wine

Mulled wine is officially my favorite cure for cold winter nights.

It’s sangria’s hot sister, and she’s here for cozy nights in!

Give your shaker a night off, and grab a saucepan instead.

Combine together red wine, brandy, orange slices, and spices until warm. 

If needed, sweeten the mulled wine with honey or maple syrup before serving.

15. Cinnamon and Tequila Hot Chocolate Cocktail

Trust me when I say this list isn’t all cold cocktails!

Yep, this boozy spiced hot chocolate definitely deserves a place on this list. 

If a hot cup of cocoa doesn’t warm you up, a couple of splashes of tequila will!

It’s rich in dark chocolate, vanilla bean, and cinnamon.

This cocoa is even better when shared with someone you love.

Garnish each mug with a cinnamon stick before sipping over smiles!

16. Blood Orange Cinnamon Margarita

Say adios to boring old margaritas, there’s a new pitcher in town!

Yep, I’m talking about blood orange and cinnamon married to tequila in one glass.

In your favorite serving pitcher, combine tequila, lime, blood orange juice, and triple sec.

Give that combination a swirl and sweeten to taste with agave or honey.

Rim the glasses with a cinnamon, sugar, and salt mixture, and enjoy! 

17. Cinnamon Apple Cider Mimosa

I’ll tell you what, brunch just got a whole lot better!

These apple cider mimosas are the perfect fall brunch drink to share with your favorite people.

For this tasty cinnamon drink, ditch the orange juice and pour in some apple cider instead.

Swirl in a dash of cinnamon with the champagne and cider and enjoy.

If you’re hosting a party and want gorgeous garnished drinks, go for it.

Grab some apple slices, cinnamon sticks, and an anise star, too.
