The Enormous Schwanzstucker

  • 2.0 oz. White Rum
  • 0.75 oz. lemon juice
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters

Shake with ice and strain into sugar rimmed cocktail glass.
Light one ounce of Cointreau on fire and pour into glass.
Toast stick of cinnamon and stir resulting drink with stick.

Fire! Fire good! Here we have rum from a Daiquiri, bitters from a Manhattan and lemon juice and sugared rim from a Sidecar. The Cointreau comes from a Margarita, and seeing it lit aflame is a cool effect but honestly does nothing for the drink. The toasted cinnamon stick, on the other hand, really helps the nose of the final drink.

Omit the cinnamon stick and you just have a Schwanzstucker, so use the cinnamon stick. Woof.
