- 2 large cinnamon sticks (20g)

Snap your cinnamon sticks into smaller pieces and add to a dry saucepan. Toast the cinnamon sticks over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until the air becomes fragrant (about 4 minutes). Add the water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat once boiling and add in the sugar. Stir until all sugars are dissolved. Let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks and bottle in a glass jar. Once the liquid is cooled, refrigerate.
