It features a base of whiskey that provides a rich and slightly smoky undertone, which is elegantly complemented by the sweet and crisp notes of cider. The addition of cinnamon schnapps infuses the drink with a spicy sweetness and a hint of festive spirit, making it a delightful choice for those chilly evenings or family gatherings. Served in a highball glass, Gran's Favourite possesses a rustic charm and a flavor profile that balances the robustness of whiskey with the light effervescence and fruitiness of cider, capped with a gentle cinnamon aroma that ties the drink together.
