Victor Jules Bergeron Jr., better known as Polynesian restaurant chain founder Trader Vic, created this tiki classic and published it in Trader Vic’s Bartender’s Guide in 1947. The drink isn’t a far cry from the Hemingway Daiquiri, which also includes rum, lime, sweetener and maraschino liqueur. But the blended Beachcomber swaps out the Hemingway Daiquiri’s sugar for Cointreau and forgoes grapefruit juice, resulting in a delightfully sweet and refreshingly easy-to-make tiki cocktail.
- Pour all of the ingredients and a half cup of crushed ice into a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- Pour into a chilled coupe glass.
This classic blended Daiquiri is so refreshingly delicious and banana-riffic that one sip will make you go bananas (B-A-N-A-N-A-S). Made with fresh bananas, instead of an artificial banana-flavoured liqueur, and both light and dark rums, it has a rich depth, loads of creamy banana flavor and a wallop of boozy rum goodness. Ripe for balmy summer day...
