conquest of paradise

1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Wednesdays ago, I was perusing the cocktail database at Drink when I uncovered the Conquest of Paradise. The recipe was attributed to Ezra Star and the cominbation reminded me of her Daiquiri-styled Elements of the Stars that was published in the Drinking Like Ladies book. The Conquest of Paradise launched with a smoke, vegetal, and cinnamon aroma. Next, lemon and a hint of caramel on the sip sailed into smoke, cinnamon, vegetal, and clementine flavors on the swallow.
