Lorikeet

Lorikeet tropical cocktail with rye whiskey, banana liqueur, cinnamon syrup, pineapple juice, lemon juice, Peychaud's bitters, and aromatic bitters

We have yet to come across a single recipe in Shannon Mustipher’s excellent book Tiki that we didn’t fall in love with, and the Lorikeet is no exception. It’s banana-forward, so you’ll need a good banana liqueur like Giffard’s Banane du Bresil, or Tempus Fugit’s Crème De Banane.

Mustipher’s recipe calls for a total of 10 dashes of bitters: 6 of Peychaud’s, 4 of Angostura. If you don’t have one of these, you can use a single variety for all 10 dashes, or you can swap in something else appropriate, like tiki or citrus bitters.

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.
