If you are a cocktail novice, you have heard of the Sidecar, which is made with brandy. Here is something like it made with the base liquor being spiced rum: the Cable Car. Another rum sipper that does a good job complimenting the spiced rum with a perfect combination of sweet and sour ingredients.
I sure do like the short weeks. We are already at Thursday and the weekend is just around the corner. Here’s a perfect Drink of the Day to prime yourself for a hearty meal with friends. A perfect quaff for that special cocktail hour. Enjoy!

3/4 oz. Orange Curacao
Juice of one Lemon
1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
Method: In a mixing glass filled with ice, pour in all the ingredients to measure. Cap with a tin and shake well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a wheel of lemon on the rim of the glass.
