daiq.jpg Jeremy Thompson of the NOLA Daiquiri Fest tells the Defender how he feels about booze snobs claiming the frozen version is inferior to its hand-shaken predecessor: "At Tales of the Cocktail, cocktail aficionados gave all those buttons away that said things like, ‘I heart go cups,’ or ‘I heart this bartender or that bartender.’ There was also one that said, ‘I heart hand-shaken Daiquiris.’ There seems to be this love of the original used as a kickback against frozen Daiquiris.The reality is, you can go down to Cuba and they have as many frozen daiquiri shops as we do.” [NOLA Def]
