Hemingway Special Instructions

The Hemingway Special, also known as the Papa Doble, is a classic cocktail created in the 1930s. Named after the famous writer Ernest Hemingway, this refreshing drink is a variation of the classic Daiquiri. The Hemingway Special combines rum with the tartness of grapefruit and lime juice, and a touch of sweetness from maraschino liqueur. It is a delightful cocktail that is both easy to make and enjoy.

To make the Hemingway Special, you will need the following ingredients:

  1. 2 ounces of white rum
  2. 1 ounce of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  3. 1/2 ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice
  4. 1/4 ounce of maraschino liqueur
  5. Ice

To begin, fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Then, add the rum, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and maraschino liqueur to the shaker. Shake well, until the shaker feels cold to the touch.

Next, strain the mixture into a chilled cocktail glass. If desired, you can garnish the drink with a twist of grapefruit peel or a maraschino cherry. Serve and enjoy!

The Hemingway Special is a refreshing and tangy cocktail that is perfect for sipping on a hot summer day. Its unique combination of flavors makes it a standout choice for those who enjoy a twist on a classic Daiquiri. Whether you are a fan of Ernest Hemingway or simply looking to try something new, the Hemingway Special is a cocktail that is sure to impress.

Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
