Death From Above

Death From Above

Death From Above is a tiki-styled recipe from Thomas Waugh at Death & Co that makes use of three different styles of rum, each one adding a new layer of flavor and complexity. Even with the split rum base, sherry-enhanced sweetener, two bitters, and two garnishes, it still feels like a classic, refined Old Fashioned-style sipper.

Waugh calls for Lemon Hart 151 for the overproof rum, Scarlet Ibis for the dark or aged rum, and Cruzan Black Strap for the black rum. All of these are potent, flavorful choices – if you make substitutions, be sure they’re of similar mettle.

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!
