Simple cinnamon syrup

Cover the bottom of a small saucepan with water. Add two tablespoons of sugar and three cinnamon sticks. Bring the mixture to a boil. Allow it to simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside. When the mixture reaches room temperature remove the cinnamon sticks, strain, and refrigerate your syrup for later use.
