Overproof rum

Outside of the Carribean, rum is typically sold at a diluted strength of around 80 proof (40% alcohol by volume, or thereabouts). Overproof rum is the undiluted version, typically sold at about 160 to 190 proof. In addition to providing a great kick in punches and other large-scale preparations, it’s also highly flammable – awesome! Obligatory safety warning: Treat overproof rum like a can of gasoline. Don’t smoke around it, don’t light a match… hell, don’t even twerk around it.

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
