Castaway

Castaway cocktail with dark rum, coffee liqueur, and pineapple juice

Rum, coffee, and pineapple is one of our favorite tiki combos, and the Castaway is where it all began for us. It’s a creation of legend Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, based on a shot he used to serve at Dorrian’s Red Hand Bar in NYC.

You can use dark rum or aged rum here, but if you use dark rum, be sure it’s not too sweet. We’ve tried with a blackstrap rum, and found that its molasses sweetness fights with the coffee liqueur.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
