Eric Nelson doesn’t take cocktails—or life, really—too seriously. Seriously! His drinks are well crafted, but they also have a sense of humor, and I love the way he doctors everyday Coca-Cola with savory soy sauce in this recipe. The drink is a killer pairing for a burger.

- 3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3/4 ounce maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 3 ounces Coca-Cola
- Freshly grated cinnamon, for garnish
- Combine the lemon juice, maple syrup, and soy sauce in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, seal the shaker, and shake just to combine, about 3 seconds. Add the Coca-Cola, then double-strain into a collins glass filled with crushed ice. To serve, grate cinnamon over the top.
