Queen’s Park Hotel Super Cocktail

Queen's Park Hotel Super Cocktail with rum and sweet vermouth

Yet another lost-again found-again classic from Jell “Beachbum” Berry’s Potions of the Caribbean, this one is notable for how much sweet vermouth it brings to the table. Make sure it’s fresh – after a month or so, vermouth tends get a slightly funky twang to it.

There’s also a fair amount of grenadine in the recipe – you’ll be doing yourself a favor if you get proper pomegranate grenadine, not the red corn syrup usually passed off for it.

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.
