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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
