Garnish with lemon zest.

  • 1 oz aged rum

  • ½ oz Spiced Honey Syrup, warm (See instructions)
  • ½ oz egg white
  • Freshly grated cinnamon for garnish

SPICED HONEY SYRUP

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • Peel from half of orange
  • 6 cloves
  • Notice: The consumption of raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of food borne illness.

Instructions:

Add all ingredients except cinnamon to a cocktail tin and shake until you feel the mixture foaming. Add ice to the tin and shake hard for 10–15 seconds. Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve.

SPICED HONEY SYRUP

Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until warm and fragrant. (Avoid overcooking, as the syrup should not reduce and thicken.) Remove from heat; strain and discard solids. The syrup can be refrigerated for up to two weeks. However, it should be gently rewarmed to create the cocktail.
