Kingston Soundsystem

Kingston Soundsystem at PUNCH

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.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
