Despite this cold and rainy summer on the East Coast, the Daily Beast reported on the tropical, summery drink that Ernest Hemingway imported from Cuba.
The essay has a brief history of daiquiri, then delivers three different recipes for the classic umbrella-laden drink. If you are looking for more recipes, this GalleyCat editor has also been performing some journalistic mixology with a copy of Food & Wine’s Cocktails ’09 book.
Here’s more from the story: “Hemingway, it seems universally agreed, would have likely done a shot of Scope if that’s all that was available. But when visiting a dark bar off Havana’s Parque Central called El Floridita, he stumbled upon a drink called the daiquiri and forever changed the way that summer tastes.”
