gothenberg

1 1/4 oz Blanco Tequila (Piedra Azul)
3/4 oz Kronan Swedish Punsch
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Simple Syrup
3/4 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Two Mondays ago, I decided to make a recipe that I had spotted in the Imbibe Magazine web recipes from 2014 called the Gothenberg; it was created by Meagan Schmoll's Gothenberg at The Rose in Jackson Wyoming. Tequila and cinnamon syrup are a delightful combination in drinks like the Gilda and the Broken Flower, and I was curious to see if tequila and Swedish punsch continued its excellent interactions as they do in the Metexa and Chutes & Ladders.
The Gothenberg greeted the nose with lemon oil and agave aromas. Next, lemon on the sip led into a tasty tequila, tea, and cinnamon swallow.
