As drinking evolved, many bartenders and mixologists started creating more and more complex drinks. A relatively young cocktail as it was birthed in the 1930s, the beachcomber is an example of tropical flavors enjoyed with a modern Hollywood twist.

The reason for the Hollywood influence is because it was actually born at the original “tiki” bar, called Don the Beachcomber. The restaurant ended up being frequented by massive stars such as Charlie Chaplin and Marlene Dietrich. As we all know, the tiki craze ended up taking on a life of its own, as there are thousands of tiki bars worldwide. In fact, there are several Don the Beachcomber locations that still live on. One thing is for sure: though the original bar may have closed, the drink certainly lives on and is a vacation and summer afternoon favorite. It’s because of this characterization that it is often compared to the daiquiri.


  • 2 ounces of white rum
  • 1 ounce of triple sec
  • ¾ ounce of lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of maraschino liqueur
  • 1 maraschino cherry
  • Ice


  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker over ice cubes, or pour ingredients above ½ cup of ice in blender before crushing.
  2. Strain into cocktail glass, or blend until smooth and pour into a cocktail glass.
  3. Place a cherry on top.


  • Cocktail shaker or blender
  • Cocktail glass

The drink is known to bring out the maraschino taste, and is a great option for a cocktail that has a tropical feel, without being overwhelmingly fruity. It’s a great option for a light cocktail in the afternoon, and an obvious choice if you feel like throwing a tiki-themed party.
