This Caribbean Daiquiri is full of island flavors, tart tropical fruits, and wonderful Caribbean rums. Few drinks are as perfect for island time as this one. Based on the coconut daiquiri it is a very sophisticated cocktail, not the usual blender bar super sweet drink. Not that there is anything wrong with those. I do love them from time to time. The Caribbean Daiquiri is a refined tropical delight.
The addition of pineapple to the lime and coconut, balanced with a good island rum and simple syrup takes the drink straight to the Caribbean islands.

What are Daiquiri’s?
Daiquiri’s are a very popular family of cocktails. Today the name typically implies something fruity and summery, but if we consider it a style of cocktail then by changing the ingredients it is capable of many iterations. A daiquiri is a drink leaning more towards the sour of citrus, than the other ingredients. I say leaning because, typically its true, but certainly not a hard a fast rule. One thing that is true of a well made cocktail in the daiquiri family is they require attention.
Because of the citrus forward nature of this style of cocktail it can’t just be slung together with consistent effect. As example, a gin martini is based on two liquors which are perfectly consistent. The recipe will work every time you make it. A citrus forward drink depends on the fruit, which is not as consistent.
Therefore, you may not be surprised to learn of the family members in the Daiquiri family, these are usually more careful refined cocktails. Here are a few we have made, that range from obvious to “really, that is based on a daiquiri”*
