San Salvador

San Salvador rum sour with dark rum, orange curaçao, orange juice, and lime juice

The San Salvador is a delicious, simple rum sour recipe we found in the pages of Dale DeGroff’s classic tome, The Craft of the Cocktail.

DeGroff’s recipes are often a mite too sweet for the modern palate, so we eyed the orange curaçao measure with suspicion; DeGroff’s recipes typically call for sweeter brands like Grand Marnier.

We needn’t have worried! The San Salvador is a rich, flavorful, well-balanced, and decidedly rum-forward drink, even when made with Grand Marnier – and it’s still quite lovely with a drier curaçao, too.

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!
