Cinnamon Girl Cocktail

Cinnamon girlThere is one flavor that I get completely obsessed with this time of year: cinnamon! So, we’ve created a spicy but sweet cocktail that combines this flavor along with a few unexpected ones as well. We are excited to work with Kahlúa and participate in #KahluaHoliday on this recipe. We recently got to host a cocktail and craft night with Kahlúa in NYC, and we did some taste testing. Everyone loved this surprising drink, and we think you’ll love it too. 

It’s simple enough to make, as you can see in this video we made. 

Cinnamon Girl, serves one.

1/2 to 1 ounce Kahlúa
1 ounce rum
1/4 teaspoon (or small squirt) cream of coconut
juice from 1/2 an orange
5-6 oz. pineapple juice
1/8 teaspoon (or a big pinch) of cinnamon

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker and mix well. Pour over ice and serve with a cinnamon stick and/or orange slice.

Cinnamon girl Be sure to give this cocktail a try and let us know what you think. Enjoy! xo. Emma + Elsie

  • Kahlua is coffee liqueur that is rum based. So either coffee liqueur or rum could be a good replacement. XX! Elsie

  • Hi Krista,
    I would choose vodka to replace the rum, since it’s so mild. 🙂 You won’t even notice since there are a lot of other more powerful flavors in this drink!

  • Sounds great! Unfortunately in my country I don’t think I can find Kahlua… 🙁 Can I replace it with something else?

  • I’m pretty much the only person I know who doesn’t like cinnamon with anything besides sugar or apples, but without the cinnamon I think I’d love this drink! Also the title totally got me humming that Neil Young song.

  • Love this! What a fun recipe! Kahlua is so good this time of year! So may fun drinks!

  • Love cinnamon…anything and everything cinnamon,.. this look yum… loved the simple video..


  • I don’t normally drink alcohol but this seems really delicious

  • This looks delicious! I’ve been on a complete cinnamon kick since the leaves have started to turn, and now I definitely know what I’ll be making for Thanksgiving festivities! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  • Aw, fun. Cinnamon is my favorite, too.

    If you’ve never tried it, Harney’s Hot Cinnamon Spice teas are life-changing: Decaf, Regular, Green… all three varieties are deliciously sweet and spicy. And, I am writing this comment as I am drinking my second cup of the day.

  • Yeeah another ABM video! I love when you cook/make cocktails through seems delicious by the way

  • Yay, it’s an ABM video! I always love when these get posted. Coconut, rum, and pineapple juice are such a classic combo, but it had never occurred to me to add cinnamon as well. Love the twist 🙂
