Zachary Robert Blair, KANU, The Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid, NY

“A hit of sweet and spicy and smoke, like a DKM show.”

1 cinnamon stick

3 strawberries

2 oz (60 ml) Laird’s Applejack

1 oz (30 ml) Ancho Reyes Ancho Chile Liqueur

.75 oz (22.5 ml) Eli Mason Gomme Syrup

.75 oz (22.5 ml) fresh lime juice

2 heavy dashes Regan’s Orange Bitters No. 6

1 egg white

1 strawberry, sliced and threaded onto a cocktail pick, as garnish

Light the cinnamon on fire, then invert a wine glass over. Extinguish any flame and set the cinnamon in the glass.

Muddle the strawberries in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients. Dry-shake, then add ice and shake again. Double-strain into the glass. Add the garnish.
