Campfire Old Fashioned

Toasted marshmallows will always break me down! As much as I want to behave and not eat sweets and stick to the healthy foods, I just find toasted marshmallows irresistible. Now, put toasted marshmallows AND cinnamon into a simple syrup for a cocktail, and I have to swoon.

This lovely Old Fashioned is a delicious combination of Bourbon, Cognac, aged Rum & Crème de Cacao. Throw in some bitters along with this crazy good Toasted Marshmallow Cinnamon Simple Syrup and you will conjure up memories of campfires, winters and all around coziness.
