To Have and Have Not

"Maybe I can do something, its been a long day and I'm thirsty." - Slim

The author of the original short story this classic was based on was also often thirsty... Here's his namesake drink created at his favorite Havana bar, La Floradita


HEMINGWAY DAIQUIRI


1½ oz. Martinique White Rum

½ oz. Luxardo liqueur 

¾ oz. Fresh grapefruit juice

½ oz. Fresh lime juice

½ oz. Simple Syrup* (see Housemade Syrups)


Shake all with ice, strain and pour into cocktail glass. Garnish with lime wheel. 


*If you want to truly drink like Hemingway, omit the simple syrup. He claimed it "just got in the way."
