Yacht Club Daiquiri

Yacht Club daiquiri riff cocktail

Sail away with this Trader Vic daiquiri riff.

When opening Sullivan’s Fish Camp in South Carolina, beverage director Jordan Moton consulted with co-owner and lead designer Kate Towill about her vision for the space, as detailed in our Inside Look. To reflect the restaurant’s nostalgic theme, she adapted variations of classics such as Trader Vic’s Royal Bermuda Yacht Club daiquiri. But for this version, she cut back on the velvet falernum. “I use a little less because I prefer a more tart cocktail,” Moton explains.


  • 1 1/2 oz. aged rum
  • 3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 oz. velvet falernum 
  • 1/4 oz. dry curaçao
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:Nick and Nora
  • Garnish:carved lime wedge


Add all of the ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into the glass. Garnish.
