So, I plan to lay by my pool and do nothing this weekend but relax and have a few drinks. What's your go to tiki drink for lounging by the pool? Refreshing and easy to make.

What is your definition of easy? And what level of quality ingredients must be on hand - basic? Advanced? Blended ok? Shaken? Or only poured, strained and stirred? More info on the target audience would also help.

I've had success with Derby Daiquiries in foam cups poolside. Went over well with non-tiki guests. Must use full-flavored orange juice.

Any level of ingredients is ok. Prefer higher end ingredients to lower end. Prefer shaken rather than blended, but I have a vitamix so blended is ok as well. I'm not preparing drinks for a crowd, just me and another.

Derby Daquiri sounds pretty delicious and refreshing.

Vitamix? Cosmonauts!!!

Painkillers are nice in a batch. Planters Punch (4:3:2:1) with soda water for the weak (no shakin') is my go to for lowering blood pressure and getting sunburned. Use Smith and Cross for some oomph.

For minimal mixing effort lounging in a pool, I typically do Rum and Coconut Water, J Wray and Ting, or La Palomas. So, Caribbean and/or Mexican as opposed to authentic Tiki because they are easy and very refreshing on hot summer days.

Most of the summer I've been rotating these 4:
12/12 Mai Tais
Suffering Bastards
Hurricane Heyward's special planters punch
Navy Grogs w/ the Vic's concentrate

I highly recommend any of those for poolside consumption.

Nothing is simpler, or more refreshing, to me than an original daquiri. Plus it's easy to play around with if you want to use different rums or a different sweetner. All you need is rum, limes and fine sugar or simple syrup.

Having said that, the Derby Daiquiri is mighty tasty as well.

Cheers and aloha!

So far you have three votes for the Derby Daiquiri plus a number of other excellent suggestions. Planter's Punch is good too, and this thread gave me several new ideas to try.

Cheers to you, sir! You may also consider using extra-extra-extra dark rum as sunscreen. It may not work, but what the hell!

I definitely have Beachbum Berry Remixed.

Also, I love Paloma's by the pool. My favorite spirit is bourbon or gin. But I really want to experiment more with good rum.
It's the one spirit I feel I have neglected. Hence my purchase of the Bums book and me signing up here.

So I think the derby daiquiri is what's on deck. Favorite rum to go in it? I'm not afraid of higher end stuff.

If we're talkin poolside, I'm usually go just for a rum and coke. I try to think of hotel pools and usually they can barely handle that right. Maybe a mai tai depending on the hotel and hotel bar, unless maybe you consider The Disneyland Hotel, in which case you have the entire Trader Sam's menu to select from.

I thought this was going to be about billiards.

however, the best poolside tiki drink aint a rum drink. it's the Kama'aina.

I used Bacardi light. I think I need a rum that is a teeny bit more complex.
