1 1/2 oz Morin Selection Calvados
1/2 oz Benedictine
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with lemon oil.

Apple and Benedictine are a great pairing such as in the Full House #2, and apple and cinnamon have always been together in the culinary world. Without intention, the drink did seem like a cinnamon and Angostura for orange liqueur swap in a Honeymoon Cocktail, and the effect was just as delightful.
