Polynesian Remedy

Dirty Dick’s, a tiki bar in Paris – of all places! – is famous for their unique tropical creations, and bartender Scotty Schuder’s Polynesian Remedy is a prime example. We’re crazy over the smoky, honeyed flavors. The dashes of scotch lend a mysterious vibe, like bonfire smoke hanging in the air at a beachside luau.

There’s a ton of sweetness in this drink, so pick a dark rum with a lot of body and a sturdy flavor. Dirty Dick’s uses Plantation, according to Imbibe magazine. Plantation is a great rum here – we’ve even tried this recipe with their pineapple-flavored style and loved it.

Schuder’s recipe calls for a single-malt scotch with a lot of smoky flavor. We used Laphroaig, a single-malt Islay famous for its huge smoke flavors.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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.
