This is one of my favorite cocktails. It’s sophisticated *and* a crowd pleaser. I cut the sugar out of my version which looks a little something like this:
2 oz white rum
1 oz lime juice
1 oz grapefruit juice
1/4 oz Maraschino liqueur
I shake and strain, then serve up with a thick grapefruit twist. No skinny, girly twists here at Maison du Men.
And for an interesting little story about the origins of this drink read this. Sounds like something I’ve done before, sat with a bartender and asked them to tinker with a recipe, until it was to my taste. Here’s to Hemingway the dreamboat, and Hemingway the cocktail.
