Cinnamon Skin

SAM_0595 Cinnamon SkinCinnamon Skin

1 oz Tequila
large ice-cube

dash of cinnamon
orange wedge

Place the tequila and the ice into a cocktail shaker
Shake and strain into a chilled shot glass so that the spirit is very cold
Lick the pad of your index finger or thumb of one hand and sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon
Hold the chilled shot in your other hand.
Make a celebratory toast
Lick the cinnamon, shoot the tequila, and bite the orange wedge
Repeat as necessary (but in a responsible manner)!

(Note: This cocktail continues my series of Tequila cocktails named after the Travis McGee novels of American author John D. MacDonald. I have always like the Travis McGee novels, and the titles of these novels just seem to me to be particularly well suited to be also the names of great cocktails.)
