1 oz. Sour mix
Top off with Blue Moon

There is a slightly more pronounced whiskey flavor with the Tennessee Fire, and the cinnamon flavor delivers more heat than sweet making it a great spirit for cocktails. Blue Moon cuts through balances this interesting combination of heat, sweet, and sour.Paloma
