Canelazo is a hot alcoholic beverage consumed in the Andean highlands of Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and northern Argentina.
It typically consists of aguardiente (sugar cane alcohol), sugar or panela, and agua de canela (water boiled with cinnamon). Canelazo is traditionally made with homemade aguardiente, but bottled alcohol is also used. There are many variations on the recipe. It is often made with fruit juice (typically naranjilla, mora, or maracuyá juice. Cloves are sometimes added, and alcohol is sometimes omitted.
The origins of the drink are unknown, but the drink has long been consumed in the Andes. In Ecuador, the drink is often sold by street vendors during holidays. It is especially popular during Fiestas de Quito or Christmas.
