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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
