7 Daiquiri’s in 7 Days: Hemingway Daiquiri or the Daiquiri #3

The Hemingway daiquiri is the stuff of legend and is shrouded in mystery. No one really knows for the sure the exact recipe and the drinks true history. I won’t dive into the controversy as several writers have covered the topic in detail.

And a sugarless daiquiri is one of the most tart and undrinkable concoctions ever created. How Mr. Hemingway ever finished 16 of them I’ll never. Instead I offer up one that is pleasing and refreshing to the palate.

Hemingway Daiquiri
2 oz. white rum (Brugal Blanco)
.5 oz Simple Syrup
.75 oz fresh lime juice
.25 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
.25 oz. maraschino liqueur
spent lime shell
Shake ingredients, strain into a chilled glass with crushed ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and cherry.
