This daiquiri twist is another cocktail inspired by my book A MISTAKE INCOMPLETE.
I wanted to create a cocktail that could be found on the menu of the birdcage-inspired bar to where Elena leads the crew early on in the book.
The drink had to be sweet and rich, but pretty and powerful, just like Elena. For some reason, a daiquiri came to mind.
The Bird Club Daiquiri is my version of the classic daiquiri, but with a little tiki influence. I just substituted tiki staple orgeat for the simple syrup.
