1¾ oz. aged pisco
¾ oz. ruby port (Red2One uses Mal Portado, a Chilean fortified wine from Malbec grapes)
¾ oz. crème de cacao
1 oz. cinnamon syrup (1:1)
1 egg yolk (pasteurized if you like)
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: coupe
Garnish: grated cinnamon

Add all the ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake vigorously until chilled and frothy. Double strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish.
