Spicy Danger
2 oz Plantation O.F.T.D.
1/2 oz. Clément Creole Shrubb
3/4 oz lime juice
3/4 oz spice syrup
1 oz soda water

Fill a collins glass with crushed ice. Add all ingredients except for the soda water. Swizzle until chilled. Top with more crushed ice and add the soda water. Stir to combine. Garnish with with an orange spiral.

Spice syrup
Crack together: 3 cinnamon sticks, 2 (ok more like 4) whole cloves, 1/4 tsp cardamom (if you're starting from whole cardamom pods, use 1 tsp. pods), and 2 tablespoons whole allspice. Boil in 3 cups of water until 1.5 cups remain. Strain, and add 1.5 cups of sugar. Heat over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Cool and bottle. Add ~1 oz. white rum to stabilize.
