  • 1 Liter 190 Proof Everclear Grain Alcohol or Vodka

  • Cover and Cook on LOW with the lid slightly ajar for 2 hours.
  • Remove the cinnamon sticks and allow the liquid to cool completely.

This recipe can also be made on the stove top. Add the sugar, vanilla extract, coffee creamer and orange juice to a medium size stock pan and heat to just before it starts to boil stirring occasionally. Turn off the heat and allow the liquid to cool completely. Mix in the Everclear (or Vodka) and pour the liquid into quart or pint size canning jars. Secure lids and rings. Store in a cool, dark place until use. Shake before drinking. Remember this is a strong alcohol drink and caution should be used when drinking. The alcohol makes this shelf stable but you can also store it in the refrigerator. The longer this drink sits, the better the flavor will be. 30 days is recommended.
Everclear Pure Grain Alcohol is a type of hard liquor that can be found in the Midwest. Some areas do not sell Grain Alcohol. You can also use Vodka and the drink will have a similar flavor. Vodka is also a lesser proof.
