Baron Samedi

Baron Samedi sour cocktail with aged rum, lime juice, cinnamon syrup, and falernum syrup

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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
