Sumatra Kula | Cocktail Party

Sumatra Kula

The Sumatra Kula is a classic Don the Beachcomber recipe, dug up and refined by Jeff “Beachbum” Berry. It’s a rare tiki cocktail, in that it lacks pineapple juice and takes its sweetness from honey rather than sugar. Aside from those details, it’s a fairly straightforward tiki drink that takes most of its flavors from a blend of three citrus juices.

Beachbum’s updated recipe called for “lightly aged” rum. If you don’t have one that perfectly fits the bill, your favorite light or aged rum will do just fine.

Instructions

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
