Many first-time visitors to Louisiana are shocked when they see their first drive-thru daiquiri stand. Our real estate agents always get a kick out of watching people's reactions!
You might just pass a daiquiri stand or two if you're out visiting Lafayette open houses. Understandably, you might want to learn a little more about this uniquely Louisiana phenomenon.
How is This Possible?
To make a long story short, there's a particular loophole to Louisiana's open container law that allows frozen alcoholic beverages to be kept (but, importantly, not consumed) inside a moving vehicle, as long as the container is unopened.
In the case of daiquiris, the word "unopened" is generally defined as having the lid intact and no straw protruding out of it. Locally, daiquiris are usually sold with tape over the straw hole to show that it's "closed".
