CinnaBourbon Cocktail

Get it?  Like a cinnabon?  Okay, I am such a dork.  But this is really tasty, I promise.  The perfect Mad Men-esque, naughty to have a cocktail in the middle of the week kind of beverage.





- 1/4 c. sugar

- 1/4 c. water

- 1 cinnamon stick

- 1 grapefruit, juiced

- pinch cardamom

- pinch cayenne

- club soda

- 1 1/2 oz. bourbon

Put the cinnamon, sugar and water in a small pot.  Simmer over medium-low heat until all of the sugar is dissolved and cool completely.  Discard the cinnamon stick.

Combine 2 oz. of the simple syrup with the grapefruit juice, cardamom, cayenne, and bourbon in a cocktail shaker over ice.  Shake vigorously.  Strain over ice into a glass and top with the club soda.
