Daiquiri

Daiquiri cocktail with rum and lime juice

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the daiquiri is a sickly-sweet frozen concotion served to the elderly aboard cruise ships, because that’s what the last few decades have made of it.

Travel back in time to its origins at the turn of the last century, though, and you’ll find an entirely different drink. The real thing is a classic sour, perfectly balanced, a drink that truly deserves a resurgence in cocktail culture.

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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
