FAQs

I have an espresso machine with a milk frother like Starbucks. Can I use that to heat up my apple cider?

Yes, I pour the cider and the syrup into my metal container and steam until the outside is nice and warm, about 1 minute.

What’s the difference between apple cider and apple juice?

The big difference between apple cider and apple juice is the apple juice has been strained and sweetened.

Can I use apple juice instead of apple cider?

Yes, you can; I like to use apple cider because I know I’m going to sweeten it with my syrup to my taste.

How do I store the leftover cinnamon syrup?

You can store it in an airtight container right on your counter. I found these cute jars on Amazon to keep all my syrups.

What else can I use the leftover cinnamon syrup for?

One of my favorite ways to use up the syrup is actually in coffee.
