Churchill’s Breakfast

1.5 oz
A whiskey distilled from a grain mash that contains at least 51% rye, a grass and member of the wheat tribe 'Triticeae.'
0.5 oz
A brewed drink prepared from the grinds of roasted coffee plant seeds. Coffee is a fruit!
0.25 oz
A syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees; 67% sugar by mass. Super duper infamous in Canada. Most cocktails that use maple syrup specifically say to get 'A' grade, the downside is $$$$.
1 dash
A concentrated aromatic bitters made in Trinidad from water, ethanol, gentian and other herbs and spices; used in many classic cocktails like the Manhattan.
A tree bark spice, commonly used as a grated garnish in cocktails, an ingredient in the cocktail, or floating as a whole piece as a garnish.

Combine in a shaker. Burn one end of the cinnamon stick, invert a chilled coupe glass over the stick so the smoke fills up the glass. Flip the glass back over and grate some cinnamon in the bottom. Shake the ingredients over ice and strain into the smoked glass. Garnish with the charred cinnamon stick. #shake #straight

A homage to Winston Churchill, who loved washing down his breakfast with whiskey after smoking a cigar.
