St. Lucian

St. Lucian cocktail with dark rum, Creole shrubb, Averna amaro, cinnamon syrup, and chocolate mole bitters

Shrubb, a Caribbean orange liqueur, is a criminally-underused ingredient – especially when it comes to the tropical cocktails to which it is so well-suited.

Ender the St. Lucian, from Brad Smith at Latitude 29 in New Orleans. It’s a restrained, spirit-forward cocktail with tiki roots. Rhum Clement’s Creole Shrubb sings in this drink, backed by a chorus of woody, spicy notes from the rum and amaro (Averna, preferably).

Ingredients

Instructions

Stir all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass (Smith recommends a single large cube, and a stir of 47 revolutions, but you do you). Strain into an ice-filled short glass, and garnish with an orange twist.

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.
