Coast of Dufresne | Cocktail Party

Coast of Dufresne

This fabulous tropical cocktail is the creation of M. Carrie Allan, spirits columnist at The Washington Post. It’s named for Andy Dufresne, the soft-spoken protagonist of The Shawshank Redemption who escaped prison to a sunny Mexican beach.

The original recipe called for either sugarcane syrup or Demerara syrup, but we’ve had success with both simple syrup and homemade brown sugar syrup. The focus here is on the gorgeous grapefruit flavor; the sweetness just helps it shine brighter.

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!
