Notes
Beachbum Berry, explaining his drink the Beachnik: "[W]e got the idea for the Beachnik while looking at the label of an energy bar flavored with lemon and honey, and coated with vanilla yoghurt. Lemon, honey, vanilla—sounds like a tropical drink to us! After a few failed attempts to turn it into a shaken cocktail, it ended up as a blender drink in 2004." I think the Bum may have erred in using honey and vanilla liqueurs instead of syrups; with the latter, as a sour it's a straightforward delight.
