GrandTen bar manager Nino Geraci shares "an interesting twist" to a classic cocktail. One of my favorite summertime cocktails is the Hemingway daiquiri. This twist on the classic daiquiri is perfect for poolside, beachside, or any side for that matter. The history around the Hemingway daiquiri is as fuzzy as the man himself. Here’s what we know: Bartender Constantino Ribalaigua of Havana’s El Floridita created this variation of the rum sour and named it after Ernest Hemingway who lived nearby. What we don’t know is if Hemingway ever drank these or the bartender used Hemingway’s fame to lure more patrons to his bar. Either way its a delicious variation on the classic.
