Ernest Hemmingway liked Daiquiris. In fact he was living in Cuba just to escape the banality of Prohibition. But he had a preference for a distinctly different marriage of rum and lime. It’s known today as the Papa Hemmingway Daiquiri, made cold, sour and potent.
Papa Hemmingway Daiquiri


  • 3 ounce light rum
  • ½ ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 1½ ounce fresh grapefruit juice
  • .75 ounce fresh lime juice
  • lime wedge as garnish


Combine the liquid ingredients in a blender with ½ cup crushed ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass. Squeeze the lime wedge over the glass, then drop it in.
