While the color of this cocktail could pass as a Manhattan, it’s base is Upstate Vodka.  For seasonal variety you can also serve on the rocks and garnish with a lemon wedge.

2 oz Upstate Vodka

1 oz Apple Cinnamon infused simple syrup (1:1) (To make simple syrup: Infuse 3 oz sugar and 3oz water with apple cinnamon tea. Put all three ingredients into a tea mug and put in the microwave for 1 min. Let steep for 4 minutes)

1/2 oz Lemon juice

Glass: Coupe

Garnish: Lemon slice dipped or rolled in cinnamon

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass/tin. Add ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds.

Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Garnish. Enjoy!
