The Cable Car.

This is my friend Patterson’s favorite cocktail. When I know he’s coming I usually have the ingredients in the shaker awaiting ice and a good shake so he can be sipping it as soon as he’s finished saying hello to the dogs (they adore him). We first sampled it at the bar in the lobby of the Bellagio on a recent trip to Vegas. Upon arriving home, we looked at recipes on the internet and cobbled this one together.

  • 1.5 oz Kilo Kai spiced rum
  • .5 oz orange curacao (I swap in Gran Gala)
  • .5 oz lemon juice (lime, if you prefer)
  • .5 oz simple syrup
  • Cinnamon sugar for garnish

Rim your cocktail glass with cinnamon-sugar by running a bit of lemon around the rim to moisten and the gently rolling in a plate of the sugar mixture. Shake all liquid ingredients together with ice and strain into the prepared cocktail glass.

  1. I live for this drink..
    Is it just me, or does the measuring cup in the corner look like teeth in a jar?
