Comme Ca's Rumble Recipe

A Shaved Ice for Your Inner Child

the rumble!

Nostalgia, sugar, booze: Combining childhood treats with hooch is the trifecta. Take, for example, alcoholic milk shakes, maraschino cherries steeped in brandy, and drunk runs to the candy store. Now add to your list the Rumble, a shaved ice for adults, from Comme Ca’s Sam Ross. The swanky brasserie in West Hollywood has a speakeasy-inspired drink menu for your grown-up side and an impeccable burger to appease the hungry adolescent still lurking about in there.

Serves one

¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
¾ oz. simple syrup
2 oz. rum
3 fresh blackberries
Crushed ice

1. Combine lemon juice, simple syrup, and rum in a glass.

2. Add crushed ice until glass is full and set aside.

3. In a small dish, muddle blackberries with a drop of simple syrup.

4. Pour blackberry muddle over the ice and serve.
