Queen’s Road

Queen's Road cocktail with rum, honey syrup, lime juice, orange juice, ginger syrup, and Angostura bitters

The Queen’s Road is a rare Don the Beachcomber tiki recipe that doesn’t involve five different rums, a giant tiki mug, and all manner of garnishes; in fact, it’s quite restrained given its origins.

Like all great tiki drinks, though, the Queen’s Road is complex and delicious, with no one flavor standing out beyond the others. Curiously, ginger syrup is used almost like the bitters here – you won’t taste a strong ginger flavor, but it adds just a tiny bit of spice and richness.

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.
