elements of the stars

1 1/2 oz Plantation 3 Star Rum
1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Tuesdays ago, I reached for the Drinking Like Ladies book and selected Ezra Star's Elements of the Stars that she crafted at Drink. Ezra's Daiquiri-esque number was in honor of astronomer Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin whose 1925 Ph.D. thesis focused on star's hydrogen and helium content, and the recipe featured the delightful combination of Amaro Montenegro and cinnamon syrup found in the New Stone Wall. In the glass, the Elements of the Stars proffered a rum, clementine, and cinnamon bouquet to the nose. Next, lime and orange on the sip slid into rum and citrus flavors on the swallow with a cinnamon finish.
