Are you looking to put a spin on the classic Cinnamon Sunset Coffee Recipe? Look no further, because I have some fantastic substitution and variation ideas for you!

Let’s start by switching out the regular coffee in the recipe with some black tea! You can make a soothing hot tea latte using Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Sunset Black Tea, which already has the perfect balance of cinnamon and spice. Steep 20 sachets of the tea in 6 oz of hot water for about 5 minutes, then add in 2 tsp of sugar, 2-3 tbsp of ground cinnamon, and 1 oz of cinnamon schnapps and vodka to really give it that kick.

If you’re feeling like something a little creamier, why not switch out the vodka and make a latte instead? Brew strong fresh coffee using your coffee maker (use at least 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon per cup of coffee for that extra spicy flavor), then pour milk into your coffee filter with the recipe ingredients, and let it drip like normal. Add some cinnamon to your coffee grounds before brewing for even more flavor. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top of your latte or use a cinnamon stick to stir it up.

For those who enjoy a sweeter drink, try adding some honey to your Cinnamon Sunset Coffee! You can even turn it into a mocha by adding some cocoa powder – it pairs perfectly with the cinnamon flavors. For an extra treat, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top.

If you’re running low on ingredients or simply want to try something different, feel free to experiment with different beans or types of cinnamon sticks – just remember to keep the ratios comparable so that you don’t throw off the balance of your brew.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to jazzing up this classic coffee recipe – so don’t be scared to get creative!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

As a barista, I understand the importance of planning ahead and making sure your coffee is ready when you need it. That’s why I’m happy to report that the Cinnamon Sunset Coffee can be made-ahead and stored for later use.

To make the best use of this recipe when preparing ahead, you can brew the coffee strong using 2 teaspoons of sugar and 2-3 tablespoons of cinnamon per cup. Once it’s done brewing, let it cool before storing it in a pitcher or covered container in your refrigerator. The coffee can stay fresh for up to 4 days in the fridge.

When reheating, there are two ways you can do this. First, you can simply reheat small portions of coffee in your microwave or stove-top as needed. However, if you have any leftover cinnamon sunset tea, combining it with some fresh brewed coffee grounds and heating it together is a great way to bring back that delicious cinnamon flavor without having to add more sugar or cinnamon.

Additionally, if you want to celebrate with friends and family without missing out on a hot cup of cinnamon sunset tea, I recommend reheating on low heat using a saucepan on your stovetop. Take care not to overheat your drink because too much heat can break down some of the flavour and quality of your ingredients.

Finally, one word about storing ice cream: be sure not to store it in the same container that you’ve used previously for other ingredients (such as vodka or cinnamon schnapps), as this might alter its texture and consistency. And if possible, store the large scoop(s) separately from the actual beverage until ready to serve.

With these simple tips and tricks, you’ll be able to enjoy freshly prepared Cinnamon Sunset Coffee anytime you want without any hassle or loss of flavour!

If you want to enjoy the best of cinnamon sunset coffee recipe, here are a few tips I’ve learned during my years as a barista.

First and foremost, it’s important to use high-quality coffee grounds. Freshly roasted beans are the way to go if you’re looking to make a truly delicious cup of hot cinnamon coffee or sunset tea.

Another crucial tip is to brew your coffee strong and fresh. For this recipe, I recommend using 6 oz of strong, freshly brewed coffee made with 2 tsp of sugar and 2-3 tbsp of ground cinnamon. This will ensure that your cinnamon coffee is both flavorful and energizing.

When adding the cinnamon to your coffee, make sure not to add too much at once. While it can be tempting to load it up with spices, adding too much cinnamon can quickly overpower the other flavors in the mix. Instead, I suggest starting with one teaspoon per cup and gradually adding more until you achieve the perfect balance.

If you want to take your sunset coffee recipe up a notch, try spiking it with some cinnamon schnapps or vodka. Just be careful not to overdo it – a little bit goes a long way!

When serving your cinnamon sunset tea or latte, consider garnishing it with a cinnamon stick or sprinkle of ground cinnamon for an extra touch of warmth and flavor. Additionally, if you’re in the mood for something sweet and creamy, top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to experiment with different variations on this classic recipe. Whether you prefer a soothing hot cup of tea latte using Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Sunset Tea or are more partial to mocha coffee drinks that incorporate honey and cinnamon spices, there are countless ways to customize this delicious drink. So head on out there and explore all the possibilities that come along with making good use of that jar of ground cinnamon!
