Beachcomber Recipe

The Beachcomber is a perfect summer evening cocktail with an interesting mix of flavors. It's best described as a maraschino-flavored Daiquiri. Despite only using a little maraschino, it comes to the forefront of this otherwise transparent drink, giving it a nice, lively touch.

If you do a search, you will find that there are a number of Beachcomber recipes and, just like many tiki cocktails, they vary greatly. Some include banana, some use vodka and coconut rum with tropical fruits, and some simply add an ingredient or two (e.g. cherry brandy) to this recipe.

The recipe below is a close adaptation of the original Beachcomber as printed in Trader Vic's Bar-Tender's Guide (1947). That recipe called for this drink to be blended with about 1 cup of ice, though shaken or frozen, it is a great drink.
