In a cocktail shaker, muddle the lemon quarters with the ground cinnamon. Add ice and the tequila, elderflower liqueur and apple cider and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass and garnish with the cinnamon stick.

Muddle tangerine or satsuma and fresh cranberries in the bottom of an old fashioned glass. Add cranberry simple syrup, bitters, and bourbon. Stir briefly and add one large ice cube. Garnish with sugared cranberries on a pick and a cinnamon stick.


3. Blueberry Mojito 
Just in time for any Spring wedding, this will be a perfect signature drink.
