Beachcomber Cocktail

In this Beachcomber Cocktail recipe, adapted from the 1947 edition of Trader Vic’s Bar-Tender’s Guide, bartender Jeffrey Morgenthaler increases the original spirits proportions to keep the cocktail from tasting watered-down once blended.

2 oz. white rum
3/4 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1/4–1/2 tsp. maraschino liqueur
1/4 tsp. simple syrup (optional)
Tools: blender
Glass: coupe

Blend all ingredients well with ice and pour into a coupe.
