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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
