Have you ever dreamed of having an amazing home bar, filled with bottles you actually use and the tools you need to execute a fine crafted cocktail? Enter the Home Bar Project. Through this series we are going to take this challenge piece by piece. We’ll teach you the proper techniques and make sure the spirits you purchase aren’t collecting dust on your back bar.
Also known as the “Floridita Daiquiri No. 3”, the Hemingway Daiquiri was known to be drunk in excess in Cuban bars by the famous writer, Ernest Hemingway. His aversion to sugar lead him to create a daiquiri variation that was light on the sweetness. He would originally get this drink served “frapped,” or blended, and he was known to drink these a dozen at a time. Our recipe calls for the more modern practice of shaking and serving up, although if you feel like breaking out the blender, a half a cup of ice per drink would make a fine frozen concoction.
