The Cable Car is a cocktail created in 1996 by Tony Abou-Ganim.[1] A modern variant on the classic Sidecar, it commemorates the Starlight Room in the Drake Hotel in San Francisco.[2]

The recipe varies, but generally involves (specifically) Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, orange Curaçao, and lemon sour, garnished with a cinnamon-sugared rim.

Carb free variant "Cablegram": 1 1/2 oz whiskey, 1/2 oz lemon juice, 1/2 tsp splenda shaken with ice. Pour in high ball glass topped with 4 oz diet ginger ale. Garnish with lemon
