Comment:

We love Daiquiris and this is basically a classic Daiquiri with a few bells and whistles: Orange curaçao, lime juice, almond syrup, amaretto, falernum,
white crème de menthe and absinthe.

Origin:

An adaptation of Victor Bergeron's (Trader Vic's) 1944 classic by yours truly (Simon Difford).

A more detailed history of this drink, along with its variants can be found on our Mai Tai cocktail page.
