A Razor Claw?

I am transcribing some of my old Suburban Jungle fan fic from paper onto the computer. Yes, it has been a while since I wrote it. I then came across a sentence where Tiffany is thinking of ordering a "Razor Claw", but decided against it, because she doesn't know if the drink is known.

That got me thinking, "Does the drink actually exist, or did the Gneech make it up?"
So I logged onto AIM and found him online. I asked him the question and he said as far as he knew it doesn't exist. He then said he would think it would be based on cinnamon schnapps.

With that bit of a lead I decided to concoct one. I first thought of 1 oz of cinnamon schnapps, 1 oz of orange liqueur and 1 oz of Yukon Jack liqueur. The Gneech isn't a heavy imbiber, but he thought it sounded potent.

So after logging off I went downstairs to the bar to concoct one. I was on the phone with jfox and while I knew I didn't have the schnapps, I could fake it, I found out I didn't have any Yukon Jack. :={

J asked what else I had behind the bar and I mentioned I was looking at a virgin bottle of Jack Daniels, and I thought it might be a good idea. He said perfect, that should offset the sweetness of the schnapps and liqueur. He also said to add some Grenadine for color.

So I made my version of a "Razor Claw" with this recipe:
1 oz of cinnamon schnapps
1 oz of orange liqueur (I happen to have a bottle of Siberian Tiger Likor: European Blood-Orange Liqueur, 50 proof. I thought it would be appropriate. :=3 )
1 oz of Jack Daniels Sour Mash Wiskey

Put into a shaker glass and mix.

Into a lowball glass drizzle some Grenadine, try to get the real stuff, not the stuff that is just food coloring and corn syrup)
Pour previous mix into glass slowly then gently add an ice cube, if you don't order it like Tiffany. :=3

Result? Not bad, but I definitely would have some munchies or other food around. I could see Tiffany ordering this. :=3

Remember: Only drink this if you of legal adult age in the area where you live. This recipe is for entertainment purposes only and is not to be considered an excuse to drink.
