Cinnamon Switchel

By joe January 9, 2013

It’s time to welcome another switchel.  The cinnamon switchel was an idea Rolando had been mulling over for a while. We had decided to try it out and see if it tasted as good as it sounded.

We ran into an issue where the syrup was creating a gel right as we were making it. I was doing some research on cinnamon. Did you know it is made from the tree bark that comes from a type of evergreen tree called Cinnamomum? Since plants contain a cellulose the cinnamon tends to gel up when mixed with the water and vinegar. Pretty crazy, right? So we had to blend the switchel and strain it to help make it smooth.

If you’re liking the spiced drinks we’ve been running, you might like this. We’ll roll it out at all locations starting today.
