Here is a new mixed drink for spiced rum which I created after being inspired by Tony Abou-Ganim’s popular modern cocktail, the Cable Car. When Tony created the Cable Car, he started with the classic Sidecar which mixes Brandy with Lemon Juice and turned it on its head using Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum instead of Brandy in his recipe. In my libation, I up the ante replacing the Captain Morgan Original Spiced rum with the Captain Morgan 100 Proof Spiced Rum. Then I step off in a new flavour direction replacing the Lemon Juice with Orange and Lime Juice as well as adding a dash of Fees Cocktail Bitters.
Because the inspiration for my cocktail was the Cable Car, I chose to call my mixed drink, the Trolley Car.
1 1/2 oz Captain Morgan 100 Proof Spiced Rum
1/2 oz Bols Triple Sec
1 oz fresh squeezed Orange Juice
1/2 oz fresh squeezed Lime Juice
dash Fees Cocktail Bitters
3/8 oz Sugar Syrup (1:1 ratio)
Add the first five ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake until the sides frost
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a thin strip of orange peel
Please Enjoy Responsibly!
