Published by Ten Speed Press, an imprint of Penguin Random House. Photography copyright: Kelly Puleio © 2018 ----- Frank Cisneros says this is probably the most popular cocktail he's ever made; it was on the menu at Gin Palace in New York's East Village for years. Upon first taste, you'll see why it was such a crowd-pleaser. It's a sunny, warming drink, thanks to pineapple's heady tropical flavor and a spicy cinnamon simple syrup, all perked up with grapefruit, lime, and piney gin. -- There's no need to get out a juicer for this; just muddle a 2- to 3-inch chunk of fresh pineapple and strain through a fine-mesh strainer into your measuring cup or jigger. This drink would be totally at home at a tiki party; you can multiply the recipe (and make fresh pineapple juice by whirring chopped fruit in your blender, then straining), but don't try to shake more than two drinks at a time.

ingredients

directions

  • Combine gin, cinnamon syrup, pineapple juice, lime juice, and grapefruit juice in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake until well chilled, about 12 seconds. Double-strain into a chilled coupe glass.
  • CINNAMON SYRUP:

  • MAKES ABOUT 12 OUNCES, ENOUGH FOR 24 DRINKS.
  • Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Break up cinnamon sticks and add to the syrup, then increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 1 to 2 hours. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer set over a resealable container. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
