Hemingway Daiquiri

The Hemingway Daiquiri was created at the La Floridita bar in Cuba for Ernest Hemingway. Legend has it that he loved it so much that he always ordered a double, lending the cocktail its nickname of Papa Doble. The drink can be found on menus around the world today, including at Coup in NYC, where Sother Teague calls it, “a well recognized and delicious variation on the classic daiquiri. A dressed up version, if you will, that attracts attention.”
