Deadbeat Daiquiri

Deadbeat Daiquiri cocktail with aged rum, coconut rum, maraschino, lychee fruits, lime juice, simple syrup, and Aztec chocolate bitters

We’ve taken great pains to disabuse people of the notion that all daiquiris are blended; we much prefer them shaken and served straight up. But there are some excellent exceptions, and The Deadbeat Daiquiri (from the Latitude 29, Beachbum Berry’s storied New Orleans tiki bar) is chief among them.

The Deadbeat daiquiri features an array of ingredients that don’t often appear together, despite their popularity in other tiki recipes. Fresh lychee fruit and chocolate bitters are as inspired a combination as maraschino and coconut rum. For the latter, Latitude 29 uses Mahina Coco, a rhum agricole steeped with fresh young coconut hulls. That’s a tough bottle to find, so feel free to make use of any coconut rum or liqueur you have on hand.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients to a blender, along with a big cupful of crushed ice. Blend at high speed for at least 20 seconds, until the ice is fully broken down and the drink has the texture of a frappé. Pour unstrained into a tiki mug, pearl diver glass, or wine goblet. Garnish with fresh fruits, edible flowers, and other tiki accoutrements.

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!
