Luau Daiquiri

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

"There are several vanilla syrups on the market," says mixologist Jeff Berry, "but most of them are geared for coffee drinks or desserts." For his Luau Daiquiri, Berry likes Sonoma Syrup Co.'s version (sonomasyrupstore.com) for its "clean, mellifluous taste."
