A Couple of Cocktails

On my cocktail blog, I've listed two wintry cocktails over the last two weeks. The first was created by Willie Shine for 1534. It's a simple cognac-based tropical style drink using Disarrono where orgeat might normally go.  


That recipe is here

The second one is from David Delaney Jr. of Worcester, Massachusetts. It was a finalist in this year's Angostura cocktail challenge, and contains a bunch of things that seem like it would taste like pie: cherry, cinnamon, allspice, apple, and maple syrup.
