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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
