heart throb

2 oz Flor de Caña 4 Year Rum (Bacardi 4 Year)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Giffard Grapefruit Liqueur (St. Elder)
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Saturdays after getting back from my bar shift, I selected Death & Co.'s Welcome Home book for the evening's libation. There, I was lured in by Scott Teague's 2014 Daiquiri riff that reminded me of the Zombie Essence with grapefruit liqueur instead of juice here. Scott explained, "This spec was born out of our 'Gangster Time Daiquiri' sessions" which was their term for a Snaquiri. Once shaken and strained, the Heart Throb began with a cinnamon and grapefruit nose. Next, lime on the sip flowed into rum, grapefruit, and cinnamon flavors on the swallow.
