Tiki Wheat

Bourbon in a tiki drink? That's just crazy!

12 oz Orgeat, B.G. Reynolds
34 oz Lime juice
1 12 oz Bourbon, Larceny
12 oz Cinnamon syrup (see note)
2 ds Bitters, Angostura
Instructions
Build all ingredients in a shaker tin. Add ½ cup cracked ice and shake. Pour into a snifter-style glass and top with more cracked ice. Dash Angostura bitters on top. Garnish with mint springs.
Notes
Substitute your favorite wheated bourbon. The syrup should be equal parts banana liqueur, cinnamon syrup and dry curacao.
History
Originally made at the Mother of Pearl bar in New York but with two different types of scotch and called the Tiki Peat.

i just made one adjustment

i just made one adjustment and cut the orgeat back to .5 oz. i think that helps balance it out a bit more, so not quite as sweet as the 1st version.
