Hemingway Daiquiri – Classic 1930s Bar La Florida Cuban Cocktail

Also called a Papa Doble this cocktail is credited to being invented by Ernest Hemingway (along with several other drinks) when he was not satisfied with the Daiquiri #3 at the La Florida bar in Havana, Cuba. Ernest Hemingway was a heavy drinker who also happened to be diabetic, therefore all the Hemingway inspired cocktails are heavy on the liquor and very light on sweetness. True to form the Daiquiri #3 was too sweet and not boozy enough for him so he requested if the bartender could make it less sweet and with more rum. Thus the Hemingway was invented.
