Polynesian Guava Daiquiri

Polynesian Guava Daiquiri cocktail with gin, banana liqueur, guava nectar, and lime juice

This tiki classic is neither Polynesian, nor is it a daiquiri – it does at least have guava in it! It hails from the menu at the long-since-demolished Kelbo’s on Fairfax in Los Angeles, a legendary hang among tiki aficionados. The recipe was dug up from bartender Hank Riddle’s personal notes by none other than Jeff “Beachbum” Berry, in his book Sippin’ Safari.

Kelbos’ menu featured several tiki-styled drinks with gin as a base in place of rum, and this drink is among the best of those. It’s fruity, but dry, and comes off with a restrained, sophisticated vibe not normally found in drinks of the style.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
