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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
