Dressed Can

Jane Danger, Mother of Pearl | New York City

For Jane Danger’s Dressed Can, she plays off the beer can cocktail, opting for cider and plenty of garnish. “In a can, you don’t really get a lot of nose,” says Danger, of the decision to decorate her drink with a mint bouquet. In addition to Jamaican rum, cinnamon syrup and lime, Danger’s can gets liberal dose of absinthe dashed over top.


Serving: 1

  • 1 can pineapple cider, preferably Austin Ciderworks Pineapple Cider
  • 2 dashes tiki bitters
  • 2 dashes absinthe
  • 1/2 ounce cinnamon syrup (see Editor's Note)
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Jamaican rum, preferably Hamilton Black Pot

Garnish: straw, mint, orchid, dash of absinthe

  1. Pour out 1 1/2 ounces of the cider.
  2. Add ingredients directly to the cider can.
  3. Garnish with a bouquet or mint, a dash of absinthe, an orchid and a straw.
