10 minutes
Serves 1
  • 1 oz Cinnamon simple syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 cinnamon sticks, broken
  • 3 oz fresh blood orange juice
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2 oz tequila reposado, optional
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 blood orange slice, for garnish
  • 1 cinnamon stick, for garnish

To make the simple syrup, in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add sugar, water, and cinnamon sticks. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let cool completely. Once cooled, strain out and discard cinnamon sticks.

Add juices, syrup, and tequila to a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake for 10-20 seconds. Strain into a salt-rimmed glass over fresh ice, garnish with a round of blood orange and cinnamon stick.
