Brown Diamond

Brown Diamond cocktail with dark rum, sweet sherry, and ginger beer

The Brown Diamond seems like it should be a vintage 1800’s recipe, with its classic, simple ingredient list: just rum, sherry, and ginger beer. In fact, it’s a more recent creation, from Florida restaurant owner Jenneffer Pulapaka.

Pulapaka uses Old Monk rum, a dark rum made in India and noted for its rich vanilla flavors. She also calls for Pedro Ximénez sherry, one of the richest and sweetest styles of sherry. This is a robust recipe, though, and will be delicious with any dark rum and sweet sherry combination you have at hand.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
