One of the most exciting things for a bartender, home or otherwise, is getting to try a new ingredient. Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a great new cinnamon cordial from San Francisco called Cannella. After some highly enjoyable taste-testing, I immediately started using it to reimagine some of my favorite cocktails. The Three Sticks is a variation on the Third Rail (#2), a classic from the Savoy Cocktail Book.
