I moderated this very slightly in three places: First, to move the instructions for making the cinnamon syrup into the Notes section - does this get heated, or does everything combine overnight? Second, I tweaked Angostura Bitters, Angostura to Bitters, Angostura, and finally, changed the cocktail to an Original Creation.

Can you clarify how the cinnamon syrup is made?

Thanks, Zachary

Curated to change the Solerno liqueur to be a brand of Orange liqueur, rather than Blood orange juice.
