Hemingway Daiquiri

A Hemingway Daiquiri garnished with a lime wedge.

  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice

  4. Serve


There are many variations that are argued to be the daiquiri Hemingway ordered. In one variation you add a 1/4 oz of cane syrup instead of sugar and serve in a collins glass. In others you add 1/4 instead of 1/2 oz of grapefruit juice.
