La Floridita Daiquiri

One of the great features of The Ultimate Bar Book are the cocktail derivations that are regularly featured alongside the main drink.  Want a different kind of daiquiri, one that's apart from the norm?  You'll find 10 of them readily available and easy to follow.


La Floridita Daiquiri is one of the alternatives, with only a slight change from the typical light rum, simple syrup and lime juice concoction.

The Ultimate Bar Book, page 262

La Floridita Daiquiri

2oz light rum
1/4oz maraschino liqueur
3/4oz fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar

Combine all ingredients but the garnish in a blender with 1/2 cup ice.  Blend until smooth.  Poor into a chilled cocktail glass.


This is the first blended drink we've made on The Amateur Mixologist.  I pulled out the trusty blender, often used in my house for morning smoothies, and was set to go.  You should know that 1/2 cup of ice is a really small amount of ice, particularly if you're dealing with large cubes.

I blended the drink on the "Ice Crush" setting, and wouldn't you know, only after did I come to understand that the "Food Processor" setting was the better option.  Once I was done though, even if it didn't look all that frothy and slushy (it was more like small ice-chips), I gave it a sip.  Good thing too, because it was excellent.

This is a fitting next step after having made the Aviation cocktail last Friday.  There is of course maraschino liqueur in both drinks, and it is undoubtedly the reason for the similar flavor profile.  And with all the additional water from the ice cubes, it is a lighter and colder cocktail.  The result is a really nice cooling drink.  In no way is it sweet and foo-foo-y.  In other words, you don't find a plastic sword served along side this one. It's simply a nice alternative to the classic daiquiri.

On Friday, we'll be checking out the Shamrock.  Appreciate the e-mails, as always.  Keep them coming!

Until Friday, have an excellent week!
