Ingredients (serves one)
- 37.5 ml cinnamon vodka (see box below)
- 12.5 ml fresh lemon juice
- 12.5 ml Cointreau
- 50 ml cloudy apple juice
- 1/2 egg white (lion-stamped)

Strain through a tea-strainer into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and edible flower.
How to make your own cinnamon vodka
Simply infuse a bottle of vodka with cinnamon sticks. It will be ready to drink after a few days, but leaving it longer produces a stronger flavour.
… and the sugar syrup
Combine equal weights of sugar and water in a pan, boil for 5 minutes and allow to cool.
