Surf Liner

Whiskey and pineapple juice is a lovely combination we just can’t get enough of, so we were over the moon to find the Surf Liner in the pages of Imbibe magazine.

The brainchild of Gabe Fonseca at Polite Provisions in San Diego, the Surf Liner is a perfect example of how whiskey (spicy rye, in this case) can fit in perfectly to a drink with a classic tiki template.

The pretty pink color comes from deep-red Peychaud’s bitters. You could use aromatic or tiki bitters here, but you won’t get that lovely blush.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
