Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounce cinnamon whiskey (I recommend Fireball - more cinnamon, less whiskey flavor than the other cinnamon whiskeys, I've heard)
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier (don't skimp on the cheap stuff here!)
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce strawberry purée*
  • simple syrup , optional**
  • 1 ounce soda water
  • *Strawberry purée:
  • Blend one pint of strawberries in a high-speed blender until very smooth , adding a bit of water if necessary to thin out (should not be necessary with fresh strawberries but might be a good idea with frozen)
  • **Simple syrup: combine equal parts water and granulated sugar in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is totally dissolved. Let cool and store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Instructions

  1. Combine cinnamon whiskey, Grand Marnier, lemon juice, strawberry purée with ice in a cocktail shaker. Add simple syrup to taste, if desired. Shake vigorously and pour over the rocks or into a stemmed cocktail glass. Top with soda and serve.
