South Sea Dipper

South Sea Dipper cocktail with rum and passion fruit liqueur

The South Sea Dipper is a forgotten classic from Trader Vic’s 1947 Bartender’s Guide that deserves a place in the modern cocktail canon, especially in this refined incarnation from Paul McGee at Chicago’s Lost Lake.

This is the drink we whip out when we want to impress our friends without breaking a sweat. Be sure to float the port right as you’re serving it – the effect is gorgeous, but temporary.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything but the port with ice, and strain into an ice-filled glass. Float the port on top. Alternately, you can quickly flash-blend with a cupful of ice and pour unstrained into a glass, and then top with the port.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
