1ozrum (aged or golden)
1 3/4ozspiced rum
3/4ozJohn D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum liqueur*
1ozcinnamon syrup, recipe follows
1 1/2ozpineapple juice
Add all ingredients in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir to combine. Strain liquids into serving glass filled with ice. Garnish with maraschino cherries, orange slice, and fresh mint.
Bring water, sugar, and cinnamon to a boil. Remove from heat and cover pot. Allow cinnamon to steep for 30-45 minutes (according to preferred taste). Strain out cinnamon. Keep cinnamon syrup in an airtight container in the fridge. Keeps for 2 weeks.
I prefer to use John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum liqueur, however you can also find a non alcoholic version by different companies/brands.
