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.

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.
