don't talk to strangers

3/4 oz Pisco (Macchu Pisco)
3/4 oz Cachaça (Cuca Fresca)
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Swedish Punsch (Kronan)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/8 Cinnamon Syrup
1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe or single old fashioned glass, and garnish with drops of Angostura Bitters.
Two Sundays ago, I became intrigued by the Campari-Swedish punsch combination in the Sleeping With Strangers, and I decided to take it in the direction of the South American Honey Bee with pisco, cachaça, lime, and egg white. It needed a little more pizazz and a touch of sweetness to balance, so I added in some cinnamon syrup that worked well with Swedish punsch in the Oaxacan Punch. For a name, I took the original inspiration in the direction of a Rick Springfield song title. The Don't Talk to Strangers began with an allspice and orange aroma. Next, a creamy caramel, orange, and lime sip chatted with the earthy, grassy, funky, bitter orange, black tea, and cinnamon flavors on the swallow.
