The Hemingway Daiquiri cocktail in a cocktail glass rimmed with a lime slice

The Hemingway Daiquiri

The supposed favorite cocktail of Ernest Hemingway, originating from a favorite bar in Cuba, El Floridita. Signature flavors of fresh lime and grapefruit combine with white rum and a touch of Luxardo to make a fresh, very lightly sweet cocktail. Fresh in the winter, refreshing in the summer.
