At Tiki Tolteca, these Daiquiris are pulled straight from the slushy machine, but Bar Director Nathan Dalton shares this single-serve variation. “Don’t get a brain freeze,” he says.

  • 2 ounces light rum (like Old New Orleans Crystal Louisiana Rum)
  • ½ ounce overproof rum (like Wray & Nephew Overproof White Rum) 
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce grapefruit juice
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

Combine all ingredients and 1 cup of ice in a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into a tiki mug or rocks glass.
