John’s Bomb

John’s Bomb is a very interesting drink, partly because of the garnish. It gets an orange slice dipped in cinnamon, which is delicious to eat with it.

John's Bomb drink with cinnamon sugar rim and orange wheel

This cocktail features a small amount of Benedictine with a standard amount of tequila. Benedictine is an incredibly sweet herbal liqueur with notes of everything from flowers to spice. It’s hard to pin down, but just a touch of it like you get in this recipe has a very nice flavor.


  • 1 1/2 ounce tequila
  • 1/2 ounce Benedictine
  • Orange wheel with cinnamon

Chill the tequila, and pour it into a shot glass with the Benedictine. Garnish with an orange wheel that has cinnamon sprinkled on it.
