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.

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
