History has a number of names for this breezy tropical drink—the Papa Doble, the Hemingway Special, the El Floridita #4—but whatever you call it, this Hemingway daiquiri recipe will knock you off your feet…and into the nearest hammock!
The preparation couldn’t be easier—simply combine all the ingredients in a large pitcher then stir.
Be sure to go easy on the cherry liquor—using too much will ruin the drink.
If you’re heavy-handed with the rum, however, giddy up! Last, garnish your cocktail with a lime wheel because let’s face it—a citrus wheel is so much more glam than the typical old wedge—Hemingway would approve.
Hemingway daiquiri recipe
- 3/4 cup white rum

- Combine ingredients in a large pitcher then stir gently until well incorporated. Pour the mixture into a glass full of ice, then garnish with a lime wheel. Enjoy!
If this cocktail is a little too tart for your taste buds, add a splash of lemon-lime soda to mellow the taste and provide a pop of fizz!
