Delicious. Cinnamon was an inspired choice. Interestingly, as it warmed it got quite lemony, despite the large amounts of other strong ingredients. Lovely color too.

Thanks, glad you like! The cinnamon syrup was the one part I wasn't so sure about at first; I almost kept the Trinidad's orgeat... I sipped mine pretty quickly, so I don't think it had time to warm much (heh, oops). I'll look for that extra lemoniness next time.

I made it at my bar and the color got lots of stares from my guests.

When trying a new drink that calls for a full ounce of Peychaud's, I fully approve of you using <em>someone else's.</em> ;)

But lordy, yes... The color! If I hadn't lost interest in <em>True Blood</em> years ago, I might've called it the Bon Temps Sour.
