Dude, Where's My Bikeshare

Dude, Where's My Bikeshare?

This cocktail wins in the category of "Best Name Ever!"  The drink is the creation of Fabian Malone, bartender at Alfie's on Georgia Avenue in the Petworth neighborhood in DC.  With a name like "Alfie's," you might expect an old-school Italian family restaurant, or even an American burgers and fries joint.  What you don't expect is a place with Thai food so authentic, you'd think you were on the streets in Bangkok. (The bartenders will cheerfully help you through the menu, if needed.)  Mix that with totally hip modern cocktails, a culturally diverse staff (just minutes north of Howard University), and banging Reggae on the house speakers, and you have a place that is quintessentially DC.  

Fabian's cocktail is as diverse as it's environs:  mixing cachaça, cardamom pods, pineapple, and of course, Roundstone Rye in a cocktail-- you get the feel of a tropical night in Phuket, where the rye actually plays the leading role as a replacement for rum!

I dunno, but after drinking a few of these, my head was spinning as fast as the Reggae.  God Bless the District!

1 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye
1 oz Avua Cachaça Prata
½ oz simple syrup
4 crushed cardamom pods
½ oz lime juice
2 dashes Bitter Truth aromatic bitters
1 oz pineapple juice
Pineapple wedge to garish

Combine the Roundstone Rye, Cachaça, lime and pineapple juices over ice in a shaker.  Break and crumble the cardamom pods into the shaker and cover with the simple to infuse them a little into the sugar.  Shake vigorously until foamy, and then double strain into a coupe, garnish with a wedge of pineapple.
