flor de piña

1 1/2 oz Blanco Tequila (Avion)
3/4 oz Elderflower Liqueur (St. Elder)
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Canela Cinnamon Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a Tiki mug. Fill with crushed ice and garnish with a pineapple wedge (paper umbrella).
After my work shift two Fridays ago, I was in the mood for something tropical, so I returned to David Alan's Tipsy Texan for the Flor de Piña. The recipe reminded me of a Gilda Cocktail with the addition of elderflower liqueur. In the mug, the Flor de Piña shared a floral and pineapple bouquet with hints of agave on the nose. Next, lime and pineapple made for a refreshing sip, and the swallow paired tequila and elderflower flavors with a cinnamon finish.
