Baron Samedi

Baron Samedi

Baron Samedi is a demigod of sorts in the Haitian Voodou pantheon, a skeletal figure in a black top hat known for smoking, drinking, and general mischief-making at the crossroads between life and death.

Tiki historian and mixological legend Jeff “Beachbum” Berry invented this cocktail and named it for The Baron for a circa-2008 Tiki Happy Hour event at the Old New Orleans Rum distillery. It’s almost shocking that the drink has such recent origins; it seems as if it could have come from a 16th-century Caribbean pirate looking to make use of plundered rum, citrus, and spices.

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
