Thursday Thirteen - Cinnamon Schnapps Drinks

When the holiday season ends it's not unusual to find yourself with oddball liqueurs. As a result, I've compiled this list of cinnamon schnapps drinks. Even though some of the other ingredients are considerably more exotic, it still seemed like this would result in some fun mixing.

1. Astro Pop

1/4 oz. Blue Curacao
1/4 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps
1/4 oz. Goldschlager
1/4 oz. Jagermeister
1/4 oz. Midori
1/4 oz. Rumple Minze

Layer in the order given and it should look like an Astro Pop popsicle.

2. Dragon Piss

4 oz. Mountain Dew
1 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps
3/4 oz. Butterscotch Schnapps

Mix and give to the loser at cards.

3. Jack Ass

1 1/2 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps
1/2 oz. Yukon Jack

Pour into a shot glass and slam it back.

4. Atomic Fireball

1/2 oz. Bacardi 151 Proof Rum
1/2 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps
dash(es) Tabasco Sauce

Pour and enjoy!

5. Sepultura

1 Beer
1/2 oz. Absinthe
1/2 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps (Preferably Golden Stryke)

Mix the two spirits in a shot glass, drink one quarter of the beer, then drop the full shot glass in the beer glass and shot it all! Remember Sepultura means Grave in Portuguese!

6. Original Sin

12 oz. DNA Alcoholic Spring Water
1/2 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps

Pour DNA and Cinnamon Schnapps over ice in a cocktail glass. Stir and serve.

7. Red Panties

1/2 oz. Cherry Pucker
1/2 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps

Layer in a shot glass and shoot

8. Carrot Cake

1 oz. Butterscotch Schnapps
1 splash(es) Cinnamon Schnapps
1/2 oz. Irish Cream

Pour the butterscotch into a glass, then mix in Irish Cream. Dribble a splash of cinnamon schnapps on top and serve! Delicious with or without ice.

9. Candy Cane

4 oz. 7-Up (Or Sprite)
2 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps
1 oz. Cherry Juice (See instructions)

Mix with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry. Note from the person who submitted the recipe: By cherry juice, we mean the cherry flavoured water mixture from those little bottles of cherries that the grocery stores sell.

10. Did You Get the Number of That Truck (punch)

8 cups Squirt
4 cups Apple Schnapps
4 cups Whiskey
2 cups Cinnamon Schnapps

Mix in a punch bowl and serve in a highball glass.

11. Green Machine

1/4 oz. Absinthe
1/4 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps (Preferably Golden Stryke)
1/4 oz. Pisang Ambon
1/4 oz. Vodka

Mix and shoot.

12. Blow Job

1/2 oz. Cherry Liqueur
1/2 oz. Jameson Irish Whiskey
1/4 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps
1/4 oz. Irish Cream
Whipped Cream

Mix ingredients and pour into a shot glass. Top with whipped cream.

13. Hot Pussy

2 drop(s) Tabasco Sauce
1 oz. La Grande Passion Liqueur
1/2 oz. Cinnamon Schnapps

Shake with ice and strain into a highball glass.


  1. Cinnamon Schnapps is one thing that is NOT in out liquor cabinet. *shudder*

    (Peach, however, is always at hand.)

  2. I would love to drink these just for their names. LOL! Thanks for sharing the recipes! Happy Thursday!

  3. Not a fan of Cinnamon Schnapps. I like peach and peppermint is okay in small doses. I want to know who came up with these names? lol Not sure if I want to drink something called Dragon Piss.
    Happy T13!

  4. Tragically, Cinnamon is on my "No-no" list. I'm allergic to it in all forms. :(

    Therefore, I invite everyone else to enjoy it to the fullest. LOL!

    Happy TT!

  5. Carrot cake sounds great, but why do they call it carrot cake?

  6. I never heard of an allergy to cinnamon. How unfortunate. I even put a pinch in my chili. As for carrot cake, another name is oatmeal cookie. That's actually why we have the schnapps. The recipe really does taste like those sorts of desserts. Thanks for the comments, dears!

  7. I'll happily try several of these... but probably not all at once. I'm going to post a link to this.

  8. I don't drink, but I love the names! LOL!


    My TT is at

  9. I love anything with cherries. I add a splash of Fruit Advantage cherry juice concentrate to all of my cocktails and wine glass. Just enough to give it a cherry under taste.

  10. Thanks, Dilo! You folks are all kind to remark on my humble blog. I'll have to remember that concentrate, Wilma!

  11. OMG! I just saw a brand of Cinnamon Scnapps called "Hot Damn" and I wanted to buy it just to say I did. LOL!
    These sound fabulous! I'll have to check them out.

  12. I'm not much of a drinker but #2,8 and 9 sound good1

  13. All good ways to get sloshed....Wohooo

  14. What interesting combinations! Made me wish I drank, but I will have to share them wish some friends who do. Thanks

    Happy T13!

  15. Astro Pop looks simply....bizarre! I have never heard of such a drink. Some of the others look good tho. Dragon Piss, Jack Ass, and maybe the Punch I would try. Heck, why not? Can't hurt...well, more than a little!

  16. Holy moly! I love the name, "Dragon Piss." My husband LOVES Mountain Dew, too. I never thought to mix it with cinnamon; I bet that will knock one on one's ass, huh?

    It's funny, but I have virtually no liquor cabinet. We don't drink much, since my husband can't due to health reasons. I have some tasty liqueur that was given to me by a friend who's family has a distillery in Poland, but that's about it. I still have some of the citrus elixir that I made, which is tasty but VERY potent. It's more medicinal than pleasurable, though.

    One of my fantasy lives (ala the Artist's Way) is to be a bartender. I've heard that the good ones can make a good living at it, and it seems like it would be so fun - at least how it's portrayed in Hollywood. I suspect I'd be a hit if I added these libations to my repertoire. :)

  17. I really appreciate the thoughtful comments!


I thrive on feedback. Your comments are appreciated!
