[fenway flip]

1 oz Bulleit Rye
1 oz Pimm's No. 1
3/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup (*)
1 Egg

Shake once without ice and once with. Strain into a rocks glass and garnish the froth with Fee's Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters.
(*) If the cinnamon syrup is potent, replace some of it with regular simple syrup.
For my second drink at Hawthorne, Ryan mentioned that he had come up with a Flip the night before when he subbed a bar shift at his old haunt, Lineage. I think that it was the Pimm's No. 1 in the drink that sold me on it over the other options he had mentioned. The Flip offered up a cinnamon aroma from the bitters garnish with perhaps some of the syrup's notes seeping through the egg froth. The cinnamon continued on in the sip along with the Pimm's flavor. The swallow showcased the rye whiskey along with a lingering aftertaste of cinnamon and Pimm's fruit notes.
