Cuban Cane Harvest
(A Rum and Coke made for sipping)

1 ice-cube
1 oz Havana Club Selección de Maestros
1 oz Classic Coke
a dash of cinnamon

Pour the rum over the ice-cube.
Add the classic coke slowly so that it floats on top of the rum.
Sprinkle just a smidgen of cinnamon on the very top.
Do not stir, let the cinnamon and coke slowly melt into the cocktail.
Sip and Enjoy!
