Heavens Above

Heavens Above cocktail with light rum, creme de cacao, coffee liqueur, and pineapple juice

The Heavens Above is a tiki classic dating back to around 1970. It was created at the Top of Toronto restaurant, and later published in Jeff “Beachbum” Berry’s Intoxica!

We’re big fans of the coffee-pinapple-rum combo, and crème de cacao is a welcome addition to the party. It’s sweet, fruity, and rich – what’s not to like?

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
