Keep Your Dreams A Burnin’

Keep Your Dreams A Burnin' cocktail recipe with manzanilla sherry, Jamaican rum, orgeat, Angostura bitters and lemon peel

Keep Your Dreams A Burnin’ is a masterful twist on the sherry cobbler template from legendary New Orleans bartender Kirk Estopinal.

Estopinal brings in a little bit of Jamaican rum, in the form of Smith & Cross. That rum is midway between golden and dark, so you could use either type of rum as a substitute.

Like any cobbler, the final drink should be wreathed in fresh fruits. Powdered sugar and cinnamon sticks are nice, too!

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
