Kingston Soundsystem | Cocktail Party

Kingston Soundsystem

Genius mixologist Shannon Mustipher invented the Kingston Soundsytem in response to a challenge from PUNCH magazine: translate a beloved song into cocktail form.

Mustipher selected her favorite reggae song: “Skylarking” by Horace Andy, one of the most influential names of the 70’s Dub and Dance Hall scenes in Kingston, Jamaica.

The Kingston Soundsystem recipe draws on a bevy of classic Caribbean flavors: aged pot still Jamaican rum (it’s also great with pineapple rum), laser-hot overproof rum, and the incredible melange of fruit flavors offered by the humble soursop fruit. The surprise twist? An injection of Alpine herbs, from the gentian-forward Suze.
