Hemingway Daiquiri

The Hemingway Daiquiri is a little tart and sweet, and (yes!) sophisticated. Named after ol' Ernest, it's made with white rum, lime and grapefruit juices, and maraschino liqueur.

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cocktail


  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 3/4 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (go for a sweeter variety, like Ruby Red)
  • 1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • Ice
  • Lime or grapefruit peel, optional

Special equipment:


1 Combine ingredients: Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker, and then add ice.

2 Shake and strain: Shake for at least 30 seconds, until the shaker is very cold, and then strain into a cocktail glass.

3 Garnish: Garnish, if you like, with a lime wheel or a bit of grapefruit peel.
