How to Make a Hemingway Daiquiri
Originally, Mr. Hemingway requested a daiquiri with 50% less sugar and twice as much liquor but bartender’s believed it to be too unbalanced which led to this creation.
To make the Daiquiri, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- white rum
- lime or key lime juice
- grapefruit juice
- maraschino liqueur
- simple syrup
There are two ways you can make the Daiquiri; for the slushy version, you’ll combine all of the ingredients with ice in a blender and blend until it reaches a slushy consistency. Then pour into a wine glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
For the alternative version, that does not use ice, combine the ingredients in a shaker and shake until cold. Pour into a martini glass or coupe such as the one pictured below and garnish with a lime wheel.
