Cinnamon-Smoked Whiskey Sour

Lake Placid bartender Zachary Blair crafted this cocktail with aged rum but says any hard liquor will work. We made versions with gin, scotch and gold rum and preferred the heft and balance that bourbon gave this citrusy cocktail. Blair recommends using a wine glass to capture the smoky aroma; if the smoldering cinnamon stick is too long to fit under the glass, turn it upright and let it rest on the side of the glass as it smokes.
