Luau Daiquiri

Luau Daiquiri with rum and vanilla syrup

It’s amazing that all it takes is a bit of vanilla syrup to make the classic daiquiri into such a lovely little gem – but then, that’s the magic of mixo-historian Jeff “Beachbum” Berry for ya. This drink was  served at Latitude 29, Berry’s swanky Tiki restaurant in New Orleans’ French Quarter.

Pre-made vanilla syrups are all over the board in terms of flavor and sweetness, so you may have to tweak the amount of syrup you use depending on what you have.

Since this drink doesn’t have many ingredients, we strongly recommend that you use fresh-squeezed orange juice. OJ from the bottle is perfectly fine in many recipes, but this drink benefits greatly from the flavor of fresh juice and the essence from the peel as you squeeze it.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

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.

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!
