1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Licor 43

Since Mules were on my mind, two Fridays ago after my workshift, I decided to make one that I had spotted in the Smuggler's Cove book called La Guildive.

Once built, La Guildive presented a lime and cinnamon bouquet to the nose. Next, a carbonated lime sip led into caramel rum, vanilla, and peach flavors on the swallow with a ginger and cinnamon finish.
