It’s Thanksgiving week, so we’re sharing one of our favorite recipes for Fall. It’s a pretty simple cocktail, and one that lends itself well to making by the pitcher if you want to serve it to a group. That way, you can enjoy spending time with your guests rather than making drinks all night!
Shake all the ingredients with ice (including the ground cinnamon). Strain into an ice-filled Collins or rocks glass, and garnish with a swath of fresh orange peel. You want to express the oils from the orange peel over the top of the drink – that little bit of orange definitely adds a little somethin’ somethin’.
If you want to make these in bulk in a pitcher, you can simply multiply the ingredients by the number of servings you’re aiming to make, and add 1.25 oz of water for each one. Then, you can skip the shaking. Serve over fresh ice -it’s best not to put ice into the pitcher, as it will further dilute the drink. As you probably know, part of a great cocktail is a bit of dilution, so that water helps bring everything together and balance it all out.
