This cocktail is traditionally a Fall drink, but I think this works amazingly well for the first days of spring, fruity and delicious. It’s warming up a little, so clementines and cinnamon seem a natural fit for this change of season. I had a couple last night, and I loved this cocktail immensely….

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Macallan (or quality whiskey of your choice)
  • 2 clementines
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • splash of water
  • cinnamon stick

Peel the clementines and separate the segments. Smash the fruit very well in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, sugar, whiskey and a splash of water and shake very well to extract as much juice as possible. Fill a glass with ice and strain the mixture into the glass. Garnish with more clementine segments and a cinnamon stick.
