Cocktail History

The Daiqui-500 is a Sips From Scripts original cocktail that was created as a tiki-inspired variation of the classic Daiquiri. It’s made using our preferred specifications of white rum, lime, and simple syrup with a few dashes of Tropi-500 Bitters. This special ingredient, produced by Crude Bitters & Sodas, adds a mixture of toasted coconut, pineapple, and allspice flavors for unique complexity.

Cocktail Ingredients

To make this cocktail, you’ll need the following ingredients:

White Rum: This is a type of rum made with molasses or sugar cane juice and a neutral spirit that is filtered and bottled right away without the aging process. We used BACARDÍ Superior White Rum because it has a soft and slightly sweet rum flavor. For a mocktail version of this drink, try Lyre’s Non-Alcoholic White Cane Spirit in place of the rum.

Lime Juice: This is the liquid juice of a lime. We used freshly squeezed lime juice.

Simple Syrup: This is a sweetener made with white sugar and water. We made ours at home using Alex’s stovetop recipe.

Toasted Coconut, Pineapple, & Allspice Bitters: This is a food product made with coconut, pineapple, allspice, botanicals, herbs, and alcohol. We used Crude Bitters & Sodas “Tropi-500” Toasted Coconut, Pineapple, & Allspice Bitters.

Lime Twist: This the peel of a lime that has been twisted into a corkscrew shape.

Bartending Tools

To make this cocktail, you’ll need the following bar tools:

Jigger: This is used to measure and pour ingredients. We used the Japanese jigger from the A Bar Above 14-Piece Silver Bar Set.

Boston Shaker: This is used to shake ingredients. We used the Boston shaker from the A Bar Above 14-Piece Silver Bar Set.

Hawthorne Strainer: This is used to strain out ice and solid ingredients after the cocktail is shaken. We used the A Bar Above Hawthorne Strainer.

Paring Knife: This is used to cut ingredients. We used the OXO Good Grips 3.5 Inch Paring Knife.

Juicer: This is used to juice citrus. We used the ALEEHAI Manual Fruit Juicer.

Peeler: This is used to remove the garnish peel from the citrus. We used the OXO Good Grips 2-Piece Peeler Set.

Tasting Notes

The Daiqui-500 features the light aromas of rum, citrus, and coconut, a classic tart and refreshing rum taste, a hint of vanilla, and a lingering finish of pineapple with a slight biting spiciness.

Our Opinion of This Cocktail Recipe: Although a simple change, the addition of these unique bitters gave this classic cocktail an entirely new personality that wowed Kendall, who is usually pretty indifferent to the original Daiquiri. And Alex swore he could never make one without the bitters again. If you haven’t tried the Tropi-500 Bitters yet, race to Crude Bitters and Soda’s website to get them when they’re in season.

Alex’s Take: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
“This simple daiquiri riff is just different enough from the original to be uniquely delicious, but it’s still well within the realm of being a classic daiquiri. The Tropi-500 bitters lend a delightful coconut and pineapple notes to the drink that together give it a bit more depth than it would have otherwise, while the allspice naturally complements the other flavors and especially brings the rum’s forward.”

Kendall’s Take: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“This is such a dazzling Daiquiri, and it’s so simple to make! Just a few dashes of Crude Bitters seasonal summer flavor in the classic recipe, and it’s an entirely new drink. I especially love how prominent the toasted coconut is even though only a couple of drops of the bitters are used. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to mix up their Daiquiri but doesn’t want to buy a bunch of new ingredients.”
