Cinnamon Sour

Cinnamon Sour RecipeCinnamon Sour RecipeA few weeks ago I had a delicious cinnamon and lime cocktail at a restaurant in Chicago. I couldn't get it out of my mind, so I decided to make my own version at home! 

Cinnamon Sour

2 ounces Amaretto
1 ounce Jameson
1/2 ounce Sweetened Lime Juice 
3 Cinnamon Sticks
A sprinkle of ground cinnamon
Juice of 1 lime
Club Soda, to top it off

Mix all ingredients and serve with ice. Enjoy this refreshing and offbeat cocktail! You'll be surprised how much you like it!  

DIY Gold CupSidenote, I have been trying ideas for a metallic/glass dishes set I want to make. I've been testing out different paints. Have you found anything amazing that you would recommend? xo. Elsie

  • I love cinnamon but never thought of having it in a cocktail. Can’t wait to give this a try!

  • HI Elsie! I’ve also been wanting to try the fun gold dipped glassware. Here are two great links that I pinned:


  • Um…hello! My favorite drink is an amaretto whiskey sour and this sounds perfect!

  • Mmmm that looks delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!


  • hey girls! i just came across this gold spray-painting/west elm-esque DIY ( you might want to check that out! now i’ve got the bug :).


  • This cocktail will be perfect for sipping on the porch this weekend! I love the first photo.

  • I’ve been experimenting with the Krylon Mirror Finish spray paint. I painted a wine bottle in the mirror finish and it came out very pretty. The spray paint is very liquid-y, so you would have to pain anything like that in small bursts, but the end result is beautiful if you plan to keep the designs small.


  • Elsie, as usual you always come up with such FAB cocktails…I am def going to try this over the weekend.

    Have a great weekend to both of you!!


  • Oh my word, this looks divine. It’s almost like we cheated on spring and went straight to summer with this fun cocktail. I can’t wait to try 🙂

  • MMMMMM sounds wonderfull!!!!!


  • Oh wow, this sounds delicous! I´m definitely gonna try this, thanks for sharing it with us!:)

  • Have your tried Martha Stewarts Glass paints? I know she has a range of metallics and they hold up really well.

  • I’ve never had cinnamon in a cocktail but looks delish so I’ll have to give it a try! The paint that I love to use on glassware is Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glass Paint, I’ve found it in at craft stores and online (about the same price). There are a TON of different fun colors that are very translucent but with more coats it becomes darker, it all depends on what kind of look you’re going for. Bake it in the oven for about 20 min when you’re done, let it cool and you’re good to go! Hopefully that was helpful, happy glass painting!

  • This looks delicious!
    Ps. I recently made my own gold painted glasses and LOVE them!
    Here’s my linky if your interested:


  • Yumm, looks delicious, I adore cinnamon, great recipe!

  • Yum! I’ve never had a drink like that before.

  • abirdsdailylifetale, I used Martha Stewart all purpose paint on this one. Waiting to see how it holds up after several washes! 🙂

  • Mhhhm this drink looks soo sparkling refreshing good!
    And I love everything with cinnamon and lime!
    Whitch paint did you use for your DIY??
    I just did a DIY spray-painting vases in gold and silver,might wanna try spraying them,although this might be difficult with little pieces…


  • It looks so tasty! And your photos are great!

  • I love cinnamon !! I couldn’t get enough of it… looks delicious !

  • What a yummy cocktail…must try:-)!! I enjoy all your suggested cocktails so refreshing and delicious.

    I’ve had great kuck with Martha Stewart glass paints and then just baked them on. I also have used MS reguar paints and finished it up with her glass paints for lasting results. I’ve painted platters, wine glasses, bowls, etc. all with hardy results. I’ve noticed that glitter based paints have a stronger hold.

    Love, love both your amazing ideas:-)

  • Love cinnamon!! Sounds delicious!!

    my daily outfits and trips in

  • Looks delicious!! I’ll definitely have to try.

  • This sounds so, so good. And love the home-decorated glasses!

  • I’m always looking for a great new cocktail recipe! I always feel so boring when i just go for a glass of wine. sounds delicious!


  • Mmmm, sounds like a good combination!

  • This is a gorgeous cocktail! I love the speckles of cinnamon throughout 🙂

  • Hi Elsie! Have you ever experimented with liquid silver/gold leaf? I used it on some small vases last year. It beautiful and opaque, and way easier than traditional leafing. [ the only thing i don’t know is how it holds up in the dishwasher. ]

  • Yummy! Sounds delightful dear 🙂

  • Love cinnamon and Lime separately, so I’ll probably love this! Would love to see how the metallic/glass dishes set will turn out, looks cute!

  • I’ll have to put this recipe in my future file, since I’m pregnant, but it sounds delicious. I’m going to make a Pinterest board called “After Baby” starting with this drink.

  • You always have wonderful ideas!!!


  • YUM! Looks so good, will be trying it this weekend 🙂
