Carioca

Carioca creamy cocktail with aged rum, coffee liqueur, sweet cream, and an egg yolk

The Carioca is a rich, creamy rum-coffee flip with an unclear history. We found this version on the Cocktail Virgin blog, as served at Boston’s Green Street – with the caveat that the only published version of the recipe called for brandy, rather than rum.

Brandy doesn’t make much sense to us, since by the name the drink would seem to have come from the Carioca company, a Puerto Rican rum distillery. Regardless, it is much better with rum. Green Street uses an especially rich, spicy rum (Zaya 12 Year Gran Reserve).

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
