Callaloo Cooler

Callaloo Cooler tropical cocktail with rum, cherry brandy, lime juice, cinnamon syrup, sparkling water, and bitters

The Callaloo Cooler is a spicy cherry bomb, kept in check with fresh lime juice and a bit of sparkling water. It’s the creation of Melissa Garcia at Smuggler’s Cove, and it’s an offbeat (though welcome) flavor profile for a tiki joint; cherry, baking spice, and oakwood dominate.

Garcia calls for a dash of Angostura bitters, but spiced cherry bitters would work well here if you’ve got ’em. If you don’t have plain seltzer or club soda, a mildly-flavored sparkling water (like, say, Lime LaCroix) would do alright here in a pinch, since the measure is fairly small.

Instructions

Add the sparkling water to a tall glass. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice and strain into the prepared glass. Top with ice to fill, and garnish with freshly-grated cinnamon and a fat sprig of mint slapped between your hands and then tucked into the side of the glass.
