This Saturday is Daiquiri Day. What a wonderful sentence.
And as if that wasn’t enough, Monday 21st July is the birthday of the late, great Ernest Hemingway.
To celebrate both wondrous occasions, Los Barbudos brings us the Papa Hemingway aka Hemingway Daiquiri. It’s a literary spin on the classic Daiquiri, and was drank by Ernest himself during his time in Cuba.
History has it that the Hemingway Daiquiri, a sweet, citrusy, summery cocktail, was concocted during his time living in Havana, Cuba, by Constanino Ribalaigua, who tended the bar at El Floridita.
Heck, don’t we all wish we had a piece of that life right about now.
Get the next best thing this weekend and head down to Los Barbuos on Smith Street this weekend and raise your daiquiri glass to Hemingway and his favourite tipple.
