Shake and strain neat into a cocktail glass, garnish with a light dusting of powdered cinnamon.

Following the close of The Met's biggest show, Alexander McQueen's 'Savage Beauty' exhibit, it seems that Americans can't get enough of the Scottish tartan and spirit of the highlands. Raise your glass this Labor Day and also kick-off the Fall Fashion season (through a nod to McQueen) with a delectable Scottish-inspired cocktail.

While scotch whisky may not be the first spirit of choice for the hot summer - this cocktail will prove differently, sharing a mix of refreshing summer-time ingredients with flavor touches for fall. The vanilla and apple hints from the whisky and the cinnamon garnish are the perfect reminder to your palate of flavors to come -- while the orange liqueur and 90's-inspired kick of vanilla syrup will take this cocktail right into September.
