  1. In a medium glass bowl, combine the cinnamon whiskey and red cinnamon candies. Set aside for 30-60 minutes. Strain the cinnamon candy solids from the whiskey and discard.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the corn syrup and red gel food coloring and mix well.
  3. Scoop about ½-1 teaspoon of the red corn syrup onto the edge of a spoon. Carefully work the spoon around the rim of a glass, allowing some of the syrup to drip down the outside of the glass.
  4. Carefully sprinkle the red sanding sugar over the corn syrup for a sparkling effect.
  5. Add 1 cup (150 g) of ice to a cocktail shaker. Pour in 3 tbsp of the infused whiskey and the orange juice and shake to combine.
  6. Add the remaining cup of ice to the glass. Strain the cocktail over the ice and top with the ginger ale.
  7. Enjoy!
