The Cable Car is one of my favorite signature drinks. It is a very refreshing summer cocktail with a hint of cinnamon, citrus, and lemon on the palate. It is a rum based cocktail which was inspired by the hearing of the tracks near the historic Starlight Room in San Francisco where the cocktail was created.
As hand-crafted cocktails and homemade infusions revolution has grown, so has the trend to create new and unique drink concoctions which displays the skills of the bartender. Cocktails have become, especially in high end establishments, ever more complex and time-consuming. The bartending profession has become noble again so the bartender’s need to shine and re-invent their career has come to the forefront. The more complex the cocktail, the more impressive the bartender appears.
