la guildive

2 oz Blended Aged Rum (Plantation 5 Year Barbados)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Licor 43
1/4 oz Natural Peach Liqueur (Briottet Crème de Peche de Vigne)
1 pinch Freshly Grated Cinnamon

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass with 1 oz ginger beer (AJ Stephans). Garnish with a lime twist.
Since Mules were on my mind, two Fridays ago after my workshift, I decided to make one that I had spotted in the Smuggler's Cove book called La Guildive. This Rum Mule created by Martin Cate was accented by vanilla, citrus, and peach flavored ingredients and named after the old French slang term for rum. Once built, La Guildive presented a lime and cinnamon bouquet to the nose. Next, a carbonated lime sip led into caramel rum, vanilla, and peach flavors on the swallow with a ginger and cinnamon finish.
