Callaloo Cooler

Callaloo Cooler

The Callaloo Cooler is a spicy cherry bomb, kept in check with fresh lime juice and a bit of sparkling water. It’s the creation of Melissa Garcia at Smuggler’s Cove, and it’s an offbeat (though welcome) flavor profile for a tiki joint; cherry, baking spice, and oakwood dominate.

Garcia calls for a dash of Angostura bitters, but spiced cherry bitters would work well here if you’ve got ’em. If you don’t have plain seltzer or club soda, a mildly-flavored sparkling water (like, say, Lime LaCroix) would do alright here in a pinch, since the measure is fairly small.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the sparkling water to a tall glass. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice and strain into the prepared glass. Top with ice to fill, and garnish with freshly-grated cinnamon and a fat sprig of mint slapped between your hands and then tucked into the side of the glass.

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.
