Sequoia Sour

March 06, 2020

The oldest known giant sequoia is 3,200–3,266 years old.
Wrap your head around THAT while you sip this sour with a cinnamon twist.

Single/Firelight 750

  • 1.5oz/9oz Redwood Empire Pipe Dream Bourbon
  • .75oz/4.5oz Lemon Juice
  • 0.5oz/4oz Cinnamon Syrup
  • 1oz/6oz Dry Red Wine (Zinfandel, Merlot, or Malbec)

Add bourbon, lemon juice and cinnamon syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake hard for 15 seconds. Strain over fresh ice into an old fashioned glass. Pour the red wine over the back of a spoon to float it on top of the cocktail. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Cinnamon Syrup

Break up six cinnamon sticks (approx. 3” long) and add to a saucepan with 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil then simmer for 15 mins. Let syrup cool with the cinnamon in it. Once cooled, strain cinnamon and keep in fridge. (Yields approx. 1 cup)

Wow, what a year it's been! 2020 will certainly go down in the books as a monumental one for all of us. We're sending it off with a classy cocktail and toasting to a New Year with only hope and happy thoughts ahead of us. 

This drink is also known as the Twentieth Century Cocktail and it's a somewhat forgotten little gem. It's a brilliant cocktail that brings together a few unlikely companions: While you may not think that gin, chocolate, and lemon work well together, this recipe offers a pleasant surprise. The mix of gin and crème de cacao is amazing and the lemon acts as a foil to the sweet liqueur. Adding the elegance of Lillet Blanc brings it all together to create a timeless sour drink.
