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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
