Made since the 1500s, the trademark of this cinnamon-flavored schnapps is the flakes of 22-karat gold suspended in the clear liquid. The flavor is very sweet, with a candied Red-Hots flavor. It doesn’t even feel like 40 proof. No wonder it’s so popular as a shooter: it goes down easy, leaving a warm cinnamon glow down the gullet.
