leaf peeper

1 oz Plantation 5 Year Barbados Rum
1 oz Pimm's No. 1
3/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass with 1 1/2 oz Canada Dry ginger ale. Top with ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
Two Wednesdays ago, my adventures on the town led me to Brick & Mortar where bartender Rob Hoover and Allison Connolly were working. For a first drink, I asked Rob for the Leaf Peeper that he attributed to Matty Durgin, and the idea of a rum-tinged Pimm's Cup reminded me of the Voodoo Echo. Once prepared, this tall drink yielded a lime aroma that gave way to a carbonated lime and fruity sip. Next, rum spiced with ginger and cinnamon notes made up the delightful swallow.
