BACKSEAT FREESTYLE COCKTAIL RECIPE

Erica Sagon

Our Tiki Rum isn't just for tropical cocktails. Here, it hobnobs with blackberries, lime and a splash of licorice root tea, which gives the whole thing a little earthiness.

BACKSEAT FREESTYLE

By Stella Snyder of Cardinal Spirits

3 blackberries
3/4 ounce simple syrup
3/4 ounce licorice root tea (prepare a cup of tea ahead)
1.5 ounces Cardinal Spirits Tiki Rum
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice

Add blackberries and simple syrup to a shaker and muddle to release juice from the berries. Add remaining ingredients to the shaker, then add ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with blackberries.
