Cooking In Stilettos...
Saturday, June 28, 2008 My Favorite Cocktail: The Cable Car Martini...

In Las Vegas, when I went there with Meowmix a couple years ago, I fell in love - truly, madly and deeply - with a cocktail: The Cable Car Martini.

We stayed at the MGM and that is where Cable Car and I began our torrid affair. Now, as many know, I am also a Captain Morgan aficionado. So if you give me a martini where the primary ingredient is Captain Morgan, I'm a VERY happy gal.
So, if you are a lover of all things rum and out of the box, why not give it a try...

Cable Car Martini


1½ ounce (or 2 oz.) Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
¾ ounce Orange Curacao (or 1 oz. Cointreau)
½ ounce Fresh Sweet and Sour or Fresh Lemon juice.

For the Rim:
Orange Peel for garnish

In an ice filled mixing glass, add the above ingredients, shake until well blended.

Strain into a Martini glass that has a “caramelized rim” of raw sugar and cinnamon.

Serve with a garnish of an orange spiral.

*To rim the glass, moisten the edge of the glass with a lemon wedge, dip the glass into the mixture of cinnamon sugar and let dry for 3-5 min while you mix the cocktail.

Also - you might have to add a bit more Captain Morgan to taste.
