  • 3/4 oz Agave nectar
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon
  • Garnish: apple slice


  1. In a shaker, muddle the apple slice.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients and fill with ice.

  3. Shake for 10 seconds and strain into a double Old Fashioned glass filled with fresh ice.

  4. (Do not double-strain; you want some apple bits in the finished drink).
