Thinking of Drinking: Cooper & Thief Red Blend Swizzle

Aged for three months in bourbon whiskey barrels, Cooper & Thief’s spirituous character enticingly lends itself to Elliott’s cocktail connoisseurship, offering an out-of-the-box twist to a classic fall drink. For the spice lovers, the Cooper & Thief Red Blend Swizzle is the move (step aside, pumpkin spice). The delicious cocktail features cinnamon syrup and a freshly grated cinnamon garnish for undeniable fall flavor with a kick. Cheers!

1 oz Cooper & Thief Red Blend Aged in Ex-Bourbon Barrels

1 ½ oz Pisco

¾ oz Cinnamon Syrup*

¾ oz Lemon Juice

3-4 dashes of Angostura Bitters

Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake to chill. Strain into a Snifter Glass over crushed ice, and garnish with freshly grated cinnamon, mint, and an orange peel.

*For the cinnamon syrup: Combine 1 cup of sugar in 1 cup of water and a handful of broken up cinnamon sticks in a medium sauce on low to medium heat. Bring to a light simmer and gently stir to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and let the syrup cool. Strain of the cinnamon sticks and store in a glass jar in the refrigerator.
