gilda cocktail

2 oz Blanco Tequila (Espolón)
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup (B.G. Reynolds)

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
Two Saturdays ago, we began the cocktail hour with a recipe from Manhattan's Death & Co. that we found in Imbibe Magazine. The Gilda Cocktail was essentially a Tequila Sour that included some tantalizing pineapple and cinnamon notes. The drink's agave and cinnamon aroma reminded me of the Firecracker Cocktail, especially as similar fruit flavors later appeared on the tongue. The sip began with a sweetened lime and led into tequila and pineapple on the swallow. Finally, the cinnamon positioned itself as a lingering note that grew with successive sips.
