Spiced Moon Martini

2 oz. Kim Crawford pinot noir
1 oz. Aged rum
3/4 oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 oz. Spiced honey syrup, warm*
1/2 oz. Egg white
Freshly grated cinnamon for garnish

Add all ingredients except cinnamon to a cocktail tin and shake until you feel the mixture foaming. Add ice to the tin and shake hard for 10-15 seconds. Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve.

*For Spiced honey syrup
1 cup water
1 cup honey
4 cinnamon sticks
Peel from half of orange
6 cloves

Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until warm and fragrant. (Avoid overcooking, as the syrup should not reduce and thicken.) Remove from heat; strain and discard solids. The syrup can be refrigerated for up to two weeks, butt it should be gently rewarmed to create the cocktail.
