holy mountain

1/2 oz Palo Viejo White Rum
3/4 oz Lustau Amontillado Sherry
3/4 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Burnt Cinnamon Syrup

Shake with ice, pour into a snifter glass, garnish with 2 dash Angostura Bitters, and add straws.
Two Tuesdays ago, I ventured down to Saloon where Pete Polselli was bartending. For a first drink, I requested the Holy Mountain that I learned was the creation of Luke Graham. Once in the glass, the Holy Mountain greeted the nose with clove and allspice aromas from the bitters garnish. Next, lime and the sherry's grape mingled on the sip, and the swallow offered rum, pineapple, nutty sherry, and cinnamon spice flavors.
