Cocktail of the Week: Limelight

If this cocktail photo doesn't grab your eye, what will? This week, we're mixing up the Limelight, a deliciously well-balanced combination of bourbon, lime, pineapple and cinnamon. Whether you choose to add a flaming garnish or not, this sipper is certainly a showstopper!


  • 2 oz. Brother's Bond Bourbon (shoutout to all "The Vampire Diaries" fans!)
  • 0.5 oz. Lime Juice
  • 0.75 oz. Simple Syrup
  • 0.75 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 3 Dashes Orange Bitters
  • 1 oz. Campari
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon


  1. Add all ingredients, except Campari and cinnamon, to a cocktail shaker. Top with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Add Campari to cocktail glass, along with fresh ice and strain mix overtop.
  3. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon, and enjoy!
