These gorgeous glasses are giving me life, equally are these cocktails. The inspiration for this fall cocktail came from a breakfast I’ve been enjoying recently – broiled grapefruit amongst cinnamon on tiptop! I got the idea for this breakfast (well, breakfast side, really – I’ve been having it with my common veggie frittata or breakfast tacos!) from Rachael. The cinnamon together with grapefruit combo is SO delicious as well as unexpectedly adept.


Kind of unexpectedly practiced inward the way that these mango chocolate chunk cookies are.

This paloma is non the near authentic paloma, merely it’s really freaking skilful. Aside from the grapefruit and tequila, which are always in a paloma, I added freshly squeezed orangish juice too yard marnier. The orange flavors play actually well alongside the cinnamon, in addition to they help to cut the bitter citrus of the grapefruit. Making this the nearly perfectly balanced fall potable.


It’s refreshing from the citrus, however yet cozy too spicy from the cinnamon!

I dearest a fun rim on a cocktail – particularly a paloma cocktail or a margarita – and then I decided to continue going with the cinnamon together with add together a cinnamon salty carbohydrate rim! I ofttimes mix a picayune carbohydrate into my salt for my margarita rim, just because it actually balances the lime as well as the common salt. Here, I added a little cinnamon in addition to it’s DELISH.


For the cinnamon simple syrup, I used cinnamon sticks instead of earth cinnamon. It gives it a more than subtle cinnamon-y season profile, in addition to keeps the drinkable super pretty without a bunch of earth cinnamon floating about. This unproblematic syrup method is likewise inwards my christmas sangria and my winter rosé sangria. And my pomegranate rosemary clementine margaritas! Looking at those photos makes me feel and so festive! It miiiiight live a fiddling too early to be thinking most that though.


Maybe.
