Riverboat Gambler cocktail recipe

Erica Sagon

Have you ever thought to infuse our Tiki Rum with tea? It's a brilliant little twist by our bartender Chris Resnick and you've got to try it in this cocktail recipe of his:

RIVERBOAT GAMBLER

By Chris Resnick of Cardinal Spirits

1.5 ounces Cardinal Spirits Tiki Rum infused with Darjeeling tea
3/4 ounce Cardinal Spirits Flora
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
2 strawberries, one for garnish

Add 1 strawberry and Flora to a shaker and muddle to break up the strawberry. Add the tea-infused rum (recipe follows) and lime juice to the shaker, than add ice. Shake vigorously, then strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a strawberry.

For the Darjeeling tea-infused Tiki Rum: Place two Darjeeling tea bags in a bottle of Tiki Rum (750ml) and let steep for two hours. Remove tea bags and discard.
