Comment:

Vanilla and spice from the rum interact with the orange liqueur in this balanced, Daiquiri style drink.

Origin:

Created in 1996 by Tony Abou-Ganim at the Starlight Room, a nightclub and cocktail lounge atop San Francisco's Sir Francis Drake Hotel. The Nob Hill cable cars pass by the bar, hence its catchphrase 'between the stars and the cable cars'. Some say that Cory Reistad created the Cable Car but this is what Tony says of such claims, “Cory Reistad did indeed work at the Starlight Room with me although not as a member of the opening team. All the menus were created by myself and yes other bartenders were encouraged to participate but the Cable Car was one of my creations which did indeed go on the menu and was created in 1996.”

Tony’s original 1996 recipe: 1 1/2oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, 3/4oz Marie Brizard orange curacao and 1 1/2oz fresh lemon sour mix (which is made with 2 parts fresh squeezed, filtered lemon juice with 1 part simple syrup).
