Hemingway Daiquiri (Papa Doble)

If you're looking for a classic cocktail with a unique twist, the Hemingway Daiquiri is a perfect choice, and a nod to one of the greatest writers ever.

Why Is It Called The Hemingway Daiquiri?

The Hemingway Daiquiri is a cocktail that is named after the famous American writer Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway was known for his love of drinking and writing, and the Hemingway Daiquiri was one of his favorite drinks.

The Hemingway Daiquiri is a variation of the classic Daiquiri, and is sometimes made with rum, grapefruit juice, maraschino liqueur, and a small amount of sugar. The drink is known for its sour and slightly bitter taste, which is a departure from the sweeter and more fruit-forward flavors of the classic Daiquiri.

Hemingway is said to have first discovered the Hemingway Daiquiri while visiting Cuba, and he was known to enjoy the drink at the famous bar El Floridita in Havana. The Hemingway Daiquiri became so associated with the writer that it was eventually named in his honor, and today it is widely recognized as one of the most famous cocktails of all time.
