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.

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with abandon.

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.
