As you may or may not already know, Hemingway was a bit of a writer 😏 and a bit of a drinker. He may have looked like a Scotch on the rocks kind of guy but apparently, he could pack away 10 or more of these rum-filled lovelies whenever the feeling struck him.
You have to be pretty impressive to not only have the drink but also the double named in your honor (Papa Doble).
Take the time to savor this classic cocktail and let it transport you to the 1930’s when men still dressed up to leave the house, women were still rocking shoulder pads and a diabetic writer was making a name for himself in a little Havana bar called The Floridita.
2 ounces light rum
1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
3/4 ounce lime juice
1/2 grapefruit juice
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until chilled. Strain into chilled cocktail glass or coupe glass.
Garnish with lime wheel.
This is on our list of classic cocktails because it was the precursor to the frozen daiquiri. Bartenders would blend the drink with ice then strain it out.
