awkwardly tongue tied

2 oz Ford's Gin (Bombay Dry)
1 tsp Fernet Branca
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Orgeat

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lime wheel (omit).
Two Mondays ago, I opened up Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book and spotted the Awkwardly Tongue Tied as an intriguing Gimlet of sorts. The recipe crafted by Jarred Weigand in 2015 was his first menu item at the bar, and he was proud of how Fernet Branca and pineapple worked together here and how cinnamon and orgeat complemented that pairing. Once shaken up, the Awkwardly Tongue Tied gave forth a pineapple, lime, and minty pine aroma. Next, a slightly creamy lime and pineapple sip slipped into gin, menthol, nutty, and cinnamon flavors on the swallow.
