Sequoia Sour

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)
