Brown sugar

Brown sugar, an ingredient in cocktails

Brown sugar is granulated sugar, with a little bit of dark molasses left in during production. The color – light or dark – is determined by just how much of that molasses is left intact.

In a pinch, you can make your own brown sugar by mixing white sugar and molasses. Start with about one teaspoon of molasses to one tablespoon of white sugar and add in more molasses as needed to achieve the desired effect.

Also Known As

  • Turbinado sugar
  • Sugar in the Raw
  • Demerara sugar
  • Raw sugar
Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

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.
