Cable Car recipe

The Cable Car — with spiced rum, triple sec, lemon and simple syrup — is an excellent way to use our newest spirit, Valencia. Valencia is a beautiful, natural triple sec for cocktailing that we make with both dried and fresh orange peels to capture the sweet, bitter and fragrant character of citrus.

If you've added Valencia to your bar cart and are wondering what to make with it, try our go-to: a Cable Car, which hails from the Starlight Room in San Francisco, is bright and always in season; as good on the coldest days in January as it is on the first day of summer. Our Valencia and Lake House Spiced Rum bring something special to this cocktail.

CABLE CAR

1.5 ounces Cardinal Spirits Lake House Spiced Rum
1 ounce Cardinal Spirits Valencia Triple Sec
1 ounce lemon juice
½ ounce simple syrup
Lemon twist, for garnish

Add all ingredients except for garnish to a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, then double strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.
