So you were in a developing country without wifi and couldn’t text?
Shark ate your tablet/cell phone???
People might have wondered what happened to you…
Unless of course these were Hemingway daquiris, aka the Papa Doble, as served at the Floridita, in which case…
Hemingway Daiquirí, Papa Doble, Wild Daiquirí, Daiquirí Special
The following recipe is based upon the Daiquirí recipe from El Floridita that Hemingway drinks with A. E. Hotchner in his book Papa Hemingway.
2 1/1 jiggers Bacardi or Havana Club rum
(1 jigger = 1 1/2 ounces)
Juice of 2 limes
Juice of 1/2 grapefruit
6 drops of maraschino (cherry brandy)
Fill a blender one-quarter full of ice, preferably shaved or cracked. Add the rum, lime juice, grapefruit juice and maraschino.
Blend on high until the mixture turns cloudy and light-colored. ( See Islands in the Stream, page 281 for a more Hemingway-esque description.)
