How about a Cable Car for tonight’s cocktail?

One of our favorite local restaurants is MJ’s Steak & Seafood on Dolley Madison Road in Greensboro.  The ever-changing menu is always creative and delicious.  We are some of those weird people that enjoy eating dinner in the bar.  Don’t ask me why, but the food is just better there.  Hubby and I can sit close beside each other without attracting giggles and stares, we usually meet interesting people, and it’s fun talking to the bartender.  I love trying out new cocktails and one night at MJ’s I had this drink called the Cable Car.  It was different and addictive!   The bartender said it was an old timey drink and tried to tell me how to make it. I think I remembered most of the main ingredients.  So, I went home and made a few versions until I found the proportions that I liked the best.  Here it is!  You gotta taste this one!  Even my sister who doesn’t like a lot of mixed drinks loves this.  Note:  I usually make a big batch of simple syrup and keep it in the fridge since it’s the base for quite a few of my favorite drinks.  To  make it, just combine equal parts sugar and water, heat on low and stir until the sugar dissolves and chill.
