This simple twist on the classic daquiri comes to us from Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, one of the world’s foremost exports in Tiki cocktail culture. He dug up this old recipe for his book Potions of the Carribean. If you love tiki cocktails, you must have that book.
This drink may have named in an effort to amuse the American oil men patronizing the hotel bars of Venezuela in the 1930s. It must not have worked all that well – the recipe may well have been lost to history if it wasn’t for Berry digging it up more than 80 years later. Seriously – buy Potions of the Carribean! We can’t recommend it enough.
- 3 parts Light rum or Aged rum
- 1 part Lime juice
- ½ part Light Crème de cacao
- ½ part Simple syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a wheel or twist of lime.
