Mystic Lamp cocktail recipe - Cocktail Party

Mystic Lamp

Mystic Lamp cocktail with rum, lychee juice, orange juice, lime juice, and almond extract

This Kon-Tiki classic was saved from the dustbin of history by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, who found an old menu from that storied tiki enclave and published it in his book Sippin’ Safari.

Berry suggests serving the drink in a Pearl Diver glass, packed with crushed ice, garnished with tropical flowers and a tiny Chinese lantern made from two paper umbrellas pushed together. You can go to those lengths for authenticity, but it’s just as nice served up in a tall glass with whatever garnish you have on hand.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
