Popcorn Daiquiri

About this Cocktail

I took the PDT Cocktail Book's recipe for buttered popcorn rum and then made my own Coca-Cola syrup, both of which lent themselves nicely to this daiquiri!

  • 2 oz buttered popcorn rum
  • 1/2 oz coca-cola simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • Popcorn for garnish

Shake all ingredients over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with popcorn.

To make the popcorn rum, first pour one 750 ml bottle over popped popcorn and let infuse for a few hours (mine sat for two and a half hours). Then I did an overnight fatwash with clarified butter, and froze and strained it out the next day.

To make the Coca-Cola simple syrup I took four 20 oz bottles of Coke and brought them to a boil. Then I reduced the temperature and let them simmer for 45 minutes, during which time the amount of Coke reduced to about one-fourth of its original volume.
